The Client is responsible for appropriate rental charges, as well as
all other event expenses. Single day events sponsored by the
University of South Carolina and local, charitable or governmental
non-profit organizations may qualify for a reduced rental charge.
Please see below for the definitions of various types of events and
the rental fees applied to each.
Commercial Events: 100 percent of daily rental rate. A commercial event is any event
sponsored by an organization other than the University of South
Carolina or a charitable/governmental non-profit. Commercial rates
apply to all multiple-day events regardless of the sponsor and to
all public ticketed events.
University-Sponsored/Non-Profit Events: Up to 75% of daily rental rate. This rate is offered at the
discretion of the University of South Carolina to single day
events that are sponsored in part by a University college, school
or department or that are sponsored solely by Midlands-based,
tax-exempt, charitable or governmental organizations, such as
public educational institutions and chartered charities for the
purpose of fundraising or public education. The entire net
proceeds of a fundraising event must be bestowed on or retained by
the local sponsoring organization.
University Events: Up to 25% of daily rental rate. University events are those that
are sponsored and produced exclusively by a University of South
Carolina college, school or department for the benefit of
University students, faculty, staff or alumni. Event costs must be
paid solely through USC interdepartmental transfers.
Rental rates provide for an 8 a.m. move-in on day-of- show. One
move-in day is provided at no charge for flat shows only. Flat
shows that require more than one move-in day and non-flat shows
that require a move-in day will be billed one-half the daily
rental rate for such days. This discount is limited to one
additional move-in day. Further days required for move-in beyond
the discounted day revert back to full daily rental rates.
