Equipment Rentals

Dining and Conference Services owns 5 large portable Charcoal Grills, 2 popcorn machines, and a Sno-Cone maker available for rental. Reservations can be made via at least one week in advance. Requests need to have a specific date, time of event, and a location that is accessible by a full size vehicle for delivery. We reserve the right to refuse delivery and cancel your reservation if the delivery site is problematic (delivery is hazardous or there is potential of property damage).  72 hours advanced notice is required to cancel the reservation without penalty.  Less than 24 hours notice may be assessed a $15.00 service fee. If the event is cancelled but the reservation is not, the customer will be charged the full cost of the rental.
