AMS Tent Sign Out Guide

Modified on Thu, 13 Jun at 10:48 AM

The AMS (Alma Mater Society) possesses a total of 6 AMS-branded tents available to all services, offices, and commissions for their boothing and in-person event needs. Tents are the property of the MARCOMM office and reside in the AMS Office when not in use.

There are 3 large tents (10 x 10) and 3 medium tents (7 X 7). Be sure to confirm the spacing restrictions for events that allow booths.

It is imperative that those who sign out these tents exercise care in their handling and usage. Please ensure safekeeping so we can loan them out again. Any instances of loss or damage incurred during the period of usage will be the liability of the borrowing party.

Please note that each tent can only be booked by one person, therefore in instances of collaboration or delegation of tasks, ensure there is appropriate communication of expectations.
