Facility Overview:
Lane University Center

 

The Franklin C. Lane University Center (LUC) at Frostburg State University provides quality customer service and state of the art event and meeting spaces to the students, staff, and faculty of Frostburg State as well as the local community.  The LUC is dedicated to providing exemplary customer service and support to all of our clients and to create an experiential learning environment for our students.  The LUC, the hub of campus life, strives to provide students, faculty, staff, alumni, and visitors with opportunities to experience university activities, school spirit, and community.

 

Over the last four decades, the building has largely fulfilled its promise; it has become the “living room” and “community center” of Frostburg State University by creating a centralized location for student services as well as campus and community events.  It is a gathering place for our faculty, staff, alumni, students, and the community.  Today, the campus community enjoys the friendly, warm and welcoming environment of the LUC.

           

The LUC staff plan and coordinate a wide variety of events in the student union on campus.  With approximately 75,000 square feet of space, the LUC provides the University community with a meeting place for social, recreational, cultural, and educational pursuits.  The LUC coordinates over 5,000 reservations a year, which range in size from fifteen to fifteen-hundred participants.  Sample events hosted in our facility include lectures, student organization meetings, regional, religious, and academic conferences, formal and informal banquets, touring theatrical and concert productions, student activities events, and wedding receptions.

General Rules and Information

The following rules and regulations are generally applicable to activities and events occurring in the Lane University Center (LUC) and Lyric Theater:    

  • University facilities are to be used for the direct benefit of the campus community. Generally, facilities are not to be reserved for the personal benefit of non-university organizations unless arranged through Frostburg State University Catering Services or the Office of Conferences and Events.  Use of space by external vendors will be considered as a rental and be accompanied by fees and appropriate charges.
  • The nature of activities shall not be potentially physically disruptive to the campus. Local noise ordinances must be obeyed. While this rule may not be construed to preclude use of facilities based on political philosophy, race, religion, creed, or the sponsor, the nature of the activities to be conducted on the campus shall not be illegal under the Constitution or laws of the State of Maryland or the United States.
  • The LUC reserves the right to control noise/volume levels, and/or to curtail all activities, that may interfere or infringe upon other events and/or activities taking place within the LUC or on campus.
  • All charges must be reasonable, charged equally to all similar groups, and must be published in advance. In turn, such groups using campus facilities may charge admission, but only for the purpose of covering the direct and indirect cost of the sponsored activities. All surplus revenue derived from the conduct of an event will accrue to the benefit of the institution, except for public and nonprofit groups for which this provision may be waived.  An exception to the surplus revenue may be granted for certain programs offered during the summer months where the activity generates significant revenues to Conferences and Events, Student Affairs, Housing and Dining accounts of the institution.
  • All charges for services provided and/or damages are the responsibility of the group or organization hosting the event.
  • The sponsoring group or organization is responsible for the behavior of their guests. Persons conducting themselves inappropriately or in a manner that is a safety concern may be asked to leave the facility.
  • In the interest of personal safety of guests, students, and staff, the following rules must be adhered to at all times:
    • The seating capacity must not be exceeded.
    • All aisles, hallways, and exits must be kept clear and unobstructed at all times.
    • Exit doors must not be fastened or obstructed to prevent doors from being opened readily from the inside by any means.
    • Smoking is not permitted in the LUC in accordance with Frostburg State University policy. Additionally, the use of e-cigarettes and vapor devices are not permitted within the LUC.
    • Gambling is prohibited.
    • Shirts and shoes are required to be worn at all times.

  • At the discretion of the LUC, some events may require that a University Police Department officer or additional security personnel be present.
  • The use of skateboards, hover boards, bikes, roller skates, “heelys,” etc. are prohibited inside the LUC.
  • Recognized student organizations (RSOs) that wish to schedule space in the LUC must be currently recognized by the University and in good standing.
  • Fronting is prohibited. Fronting is when any individual, department, or recognized student organization reserve LUC facilities or services under the guise that the activity is a sponsored program by that recognized organization when it is not.  Violations of this policy will result in a twelve (12) month suspension of reservation privileges and all existing reservations will be canceled for all involved parties.   
  • Recognized student organizations (RSOs) and departments wishing to engage in non-home showings of film, video, or televised events must provide the LUC Reservations Office proof of copyright permission a minimum of three weeks prior to the start of the scheduled reservation period.
  • In accordance with University policy PN 3.020, with the exception of service animals, animals are prohibited in the LUC.
  • LUC maintains first right of refusal for providing equipment, furnishings, staffing, and the like for meetings, events, and activities to be held in the LUC and Lyric Theater.
  • All events scheduled within the LUC which require services that exceed the basic services provided (see Basic Services) must utilize LUC’s Centralized Technical Crew staffing and equipment and the sponsoring group will be responsible for the associated charges.
  • All food service occurring immediately before, during, or after an event, meeting, gathering, etc., must be provided by Frostburg Dining Services. This would include providing snacks, refreshments, catered meals, concession sales, etc. 
  • The LUC is not responsible for loss, theft, or damage of personal or organizational property left in the facility, including property left in public spaces, with an employee, at coat check, or in Student Organization Storage Cabinets.
  • The Director of the LUC reserves the right to create exceptions to these and any other rules set forth in this policy, as operational necessity requires.

 

Reservation Procedures 

General Reservation Procedure(s)


Reservations may be made by logging into the EMS Web App (https://schedule.frostburg.edu/EMSWebApp/), by email at LaneCenterReservations@frostburg.edu, or in person Monday-Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm in LUC 215.

Recognized student organization members must be listed on the official organization roster as members authorized to make reservations maintained on the LUC Reservations Office on behalf of the organization.  

University Departments may request space in the LUC up to a year in advance, though some university events, such as Homecoming, are scheduled up to two years in advance.  RSOs may begin reserving space up to six (6) months in advance. 

All reservations and special events occurring in the LUC, Lyric Theater, and/or events with LUC equipment or staffing support must be confirmed in writing by the LUC Reservations Office. 

All reservations must have confirmed and finalized details, including signed and approved estimates for services which exceed the basic services provided, submitted to the LUC in writing a minimum of two weeks prior to the event.  Events without confirmed and finalized details or those without approved estimates will be canceled. 

The LUC is funded through university center fees and revenue generation for general building use by Frostburg State University students, faculty, and staff.  No space usage charge is levied for University-sponsored meetings and events when the following criteria are met: 

 

  1. The meeting or event does not exceed the basic services provided for the venue selected. (see Basic Services)
  2. The meeting or event is sponsored by a University recognized or registered student, staff, faculty, or administrative group.
  3. The nature of the meeting or event is within the recognized purposes of the group and the event is intended for members of the sponsoring group or for students, faculty, and staff of Frostburg State University.
  4. Any incurred fees for exceeding the basic services will be paid by a recognized or registered student, staff, faculty, or administrative group.

The name of the individual(s) authorized to make reservations or request changes or cancellations on behalf of a particular RSO must be on file with the LUC Reservations Office via updating the organization’s roster on Bobcat Connect.  RSOs that meet regularly are limited to four hours of regularly recurring meetings per week within the LUC.  Exceptions may be made when the organization is conducting special programs or social events.  Exceptions to this limit will be made by the Director or their designee. 

Student organizations in the process of becoming recognized are permitted three reservations until the necessary paperwork is completed. 

Cancellations

All cancellations must be communicated to the Reservation Office – (301) 687-4048 – during business hours or (301) 687-4011 after 5:00 PM and on weekends.  RSOs and departments may also communicate cancellations online through the EMS Web App, by emailing LaneCenterReservations@frostburg.edu, or by visiting the Reservations Office in 215 LUC during normal business hours.  (See also: No Show Procedures)

According to the Facility Reservations Policy set forth by Frostburg State University and the Facility Reservations Committee:

“The manager for the campus facility where an event is being held must be notified in writing of non-contract activity cancellations at least ten (10) working days in advance of the scheduled event.  Failure to do so will result in the assessment of a $100 fee for the first offense and loss of reservation privileges for one year for a second offense.”

However, if the meeting or event is occurring in one of the LUC meeting rooms, notice of cancellation can be delivered prior to the start time of the scheduled event.  Should the cancellation occur for the same event/meeting three times in a row, the RSO or department will forfeit the remaining bookings for the semester.

If the event is occurring in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall (ARMAH), Atkinson Room, or Lyric Theatre, RSOs and departments must adhere to the Facility Reservations Policy regarding cancellations.  Any cancellations occurring inside of the ten (10) day window will be assessed a $100 policy violation fee for a first offense and forfeit reservation privileges in addition to all existing bookings after a second offense for a period of twelve (12) months. 


The LUC reserves the right to cancel, move, or modify a reservation and services based on operational necessity of the University and the LUC. 

Reservations with technical equipment or support above the “Basic Services” of the venue, Crowd Managers, Event Managers, or other staffing, which are not canceled within seventy-two (72) hours of a scheduled reservation start time may result in the responsible party being charged one-half of the estimated costs of the event. 

No-Show Procedure

A “no show” is defined and understood by the LUC as any reservation and/or event for which the sponsoring organization or department is not present within 30 minutes of the scheduled start time as identified on the confirmation of the request, and as a result, the reservation and/or event does not take place.  With regard to ARMAH, Atkinson, or the Lyric Theater, a no-show will be considered a cancellation of the event and associated cancellation fees and setup fees may apply. 

A student organization’s failure to cancel a reservation according to the deadlines provided in this policy will result in a written warning letter.  Two warnings will be given during the academic year.  A third failure to cancel a reservation will result in the loss of scheduling privileges for the remainder of the academic year and cancellation of all events currently scheduled.  This procedure applies to all spaces within the LUC, including lobby table space.  Failure to cancel may also result in charges including setup labor costs, as noted above.  After the second documented no-show, RSOs and departments will be charged on-half of the estimated costs of the event, including technical charges and setup labor at the established off-campus rate(s), when applicable. 

After-Hours Requests

Any student organization or staff that does not have a scheduled reservation after normal business hours may visit the LUC Information Desk and request a room.  Meeting rooms will be issued based on availability.  Event spaces, such as the ARMAH and Atkinson Room, will not be issued during  after-hours requests. 

Anyone requesting a meeting room must have a valid Frostburg State University student, faculty or staff ID to be collected and held by the Building Manager on Duty.  The ID will be returned upon satisfactory completion of a room inspection at the conclusion of the event.  Any damage to the room or equipment, or missing equipment, may result in appropriate fees. 

The furniture and technical equipment in the meeting rooms may not be removed, rearranged, or changed in any way.  The student organization may request additional technical equipment such as TV/VCR/DVD, built-in equipment, etc.  If equipment is requested upon arrival, the requestor’s ID will be held until the conclusion of the meeting. 

After 4:45 pm, customers requesting laptops, tables, chairs, extension cords, and other similar items should go to the Information Desk on the second floor and request those items.  The provision of meeting room equipment for customers without a reservation is subject to availability and the decision of the Building Manager on Duty. 

 

Artwork Displays in the
Lane University Center

Students, faculty, staff, departments and RSOs may request to display artwork on the second floor in the hallway outside of the Student and Community Involvement office suite.  

Individuals or RSOs that wish to sponsor an artwork display must reserve space by contacting the LUC Reservations Office at 301.687.4048 or by e- mail at LaneCenterReservations@frostburg.edu.  The same rules and restrictions found in the Event Décor section apply to artwork displays, in addition to the other considerations outlined in this section and other sections of the LUC Policies.  Artwork may be relocated, as needed, based on scheduled events and/or operational necessity. 

The usage of this area is limited to artwork and reservations will not be issued for artwork of which the primary content is advertisements or informational displays.  (See Bulletin Boards and Banner Spaces)

Only two-dimensional wall pieces will be accepted and such pieces must be framed.  Artwork will be displayed for a maximum of four (4) weeks.   All displays must be delivered to the LUC Reservations Office on the business day before the reservation period begins to be hung by LUC staff. 

The LUC reserves the right to restrict the type of art and content of artwork being displayed in this public area of the facility.  Artwork submitted for approval to be hung should be acceptable for a diverse population including children and the Frostburg community.  Artwork displays that are obscene, defamatory, or could incite a breach of peace are prohibited. 

Artwork display spaces are not monitored by staff.  The LUC is not responsible for missing or damaged artwork or displays.  If insurance is required, the sponsor of the reservation will be responsible for the purchase of insurance.

Event Décor

Decorations for events held within the LUC and sponsored holiday decorations referenced in the “Sponsored Holiday Decorations” section, are subject to specific restrictions.  Failure to abide by these restrictions will result in fees for clean-up and any damages incurred and may also result in loss of reservation privileges.  Any individual, department, or student organization found to be in violation of these policies will be required to remove the articles immediately.

  • Doorways, halls, and stairs must remain unobstructed at all times.
  • Generally, the burning of candles, sparklers, incense, paper leaflets, combustible figures, or pyrotechnic devices is prohibited on University property; however, catered events scheduled through Frostburg Dining Services will be permitted to use candles only for decorative purposes, as long as they are securely supported on substantial noncombustible bases and the candle flame is protected.
  • Only flameproof materials are permitted. Materials are considered flameproof if they do not ignite when subjected to the flame produced from an ordinary wood match.
  • The use of nails, tape, glue, thumbtacks, or adhesive on floors, walls, ceilings, door frames, or columns for the purpose of attaching materials is prohibited.

Digital Signage

The LUC Digital Signage System consists of five (5) monitors placed in the LUC lobbies, near main entrances, which offer RSOs, departments and local businesses a unique way to advertise events, opportunities and meetings.

The Digital Signage System can accommodate a maximum of sixty (60) individual ten (10) second advertisements at any given time. Accordingly, each advertisement will be shown at least six (6) times per hour/per monitor. An organization may display up to three (3) advertisements on the Digital Signage System at the same time.

Advertisements are limited to a two-week period or until the event has concluded, whichever occurs first.  The two-week period is defined as fourteen (14) consecutive days. 

Public service announcements, Student and Community Involvement events, and regularly recurring events may be scheduled on a semester basis.

Use of the digital signage system within the LUC is a standard service for departments and RSOs.  Off-campus businesses, conferences, events, and weddings will be assessed a digital signage fee.  (See Fee Schedule) 

The University has the sole authority to grant permission for use of digital signage or other advertising on campus. Permission to advertise meetings and events in the LUC must be obtained from the Department of Student & Community Involvement prior to the posting of advertisements or use of the digital signage system. Any use of copyrighted material must be accompanied by evidence that the copyright holder has granted permission for use of the material. Responsibility lies with the advertiser to ensure that the advertisement does not violate University policies related to use of copyrighted material, or copyright law. The University is committed to a campus environment that values diversity, and to the elimination of discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation, age, genetic information, creed, political or religious opinion or affiliation, disability, veterans status or marital status. The University will ensure that all advertising reflects its commitment to these goals.

Leaflet Distribution and Distribution of Materials

Written or printed materials may be distributed inside of the LUC with a reservation for a meeting space, event space, or lobby table.  Distribution of materials may not interfere with ingress and egress, blocking walkways, hallways, stairwells, etc.    

Notices, flyers, table tents, and the like may not be distributed on the tables, chairs, walls, or windows in the facility; however notices or flyers may be posted on the bulletin boards designated for public use.  (See Bulletin Board Usage

Fundraisers

The LUC will permit fundraising subject to several regulations.  All products sold in the building must be approved in advance by the LUC Reservations Office. 

Any student organization reservation that involves the exchange of money must be accompanied by a written “Record of Sale” permit, which can be obtained by the LUC Reservations Office prior to the start of the reservation period.  The completed permit must be presented to LUC and University staff upon request during the event. 

RSOs promoting fundraisers that benefit one or more organizations must clearly communicate the recipients and the distribution of the proceeds (for example, 50% of the proceeds go to the recognized student organization and 50% of the proceeds go to a charitable organization – listed by name).  “Clearly communicating” is defined as posting a sign or note during the fundraising with the required information. 

RSOs may utilize an auction to raise money by auctioning items such as art, dinner at a restaurant, or prizes.  As the LUC and Frostburg State University recognize and value equality and diversity, and as auctioning individuals or groups places a “value” on a person or group, no individual or group may be auctioned for “services” or a “date.” 

In concurrence with University Policy, any on-campus vendor must obtain written approval from the Director of the LUC, or their designee, before fundraising activity occurs in the LUC.  Written approval will be issued in the form of a “Record of Sale” permit. 

According to Pathfinder an on-campus vendor is defined as “any recognized student organization conducting commercial activity for the purpose of raising funds for charitable, educational, or athletic purposes.”

 No items or products already sold in the LUC may be sold as a fundraiser. 

 All on-campus vendors may conduct raffles in the LUC upon prior registration of such raffle with the LUC Reservation’s Office. On-campus vendors must fill out a “Record of Sale” Form.   Alcoholic beverages, drugs, weapons, and tobacco products as gifts or prizes are prohibited.

 In accordance with University Fund-Raising Policy, RSOs are encouraged to contact University Advancement prior to commencing fundraising. 

 Please refer to the Pathfinder for University Fund-Raising Policy. (University policy 5.003)

 

Donations 

RSOs and departments will be permitted to sponsor infrequent collection of food, clothing, or change for non-profit entities.  Donation collection may occur at Lobby Tables, in accordance with the Lobby Table policy, or through the use of a free-standing donation collection station in the LUC for a maximum of 14 business days per month.

Donation collection stations will be displayed in public spaces within the LUC on a first-come, first-served basis. Locations will be assigned based on scheduled events within the facility.  Collection stations must be portable and may be relocated, as needed, based on scheduled events and/or operational necessity.  The sponsoring entity will be responsible for checking on the condition of the station daily to ensure that it is not overfilled. 

 Departments or organizations are responsible for providing an 11” x 17” sign to be posted on the donation collection station that includes the following information: 

  • Department or recognized student organization name

  • Recipient organization name (i.e.: Lions Club, Toys for Tots, Frostburg Food Pantry, etc.)
  • Contact information for the sponsoring department or recognized student organization)

 The LUC will not provide storage for items collected at donation stations.  Departments and recognized student organizations that wish to sponsor a donation collection must reserve space by contacting the LUC Reservations Office at 301.687.4048 or by e- mail at LaneCenterReservations@frostburg.edu.  The LUC reserves the right to limit the number of donation collections based on operational necessity.  If any department or recognized student organization fails to adhere to these requirements, the LUC reserves the right to discontinue the donation collection station and cancel the reservation.  

 

Food Product Sales and Giveaways

 RSOs and departments may reserve lobby table space to host bake sale fundraisers. A bake sale is defined as the sale of items that will not spoil in the absence of refrigeration or heat. All rules and guidelines associated with lobby tables and fundraising apply, in addition of the following regulations. Bake sales will only be permitted to occur at lobby tables, with a reservation, and may not occur during a scheduled event in another venue (see Food and Beverage).  Departments and organizations engaging in a bake sale are required adhere to Allegheny County Health Department Regulations as well as the following requirements:

 Items sold at a bake sale fundraiser in the LUC must:

  • be pre-made. No cooking, baking, broiling, or other such operations may be performed in the LUC.
  • be prepackaged for individual sale before being brought into the facility. No open food containers are permitted.
  • be kept only in food-grade plastic bags.

 The LUC is the focal point of the University for students, faculty, administration, alumni, and community activities.  With its five (5) meeting rooms, two (2) flexible event spaces, lobby tables, two (2) lobby spaces, and one large lounge space, the LUC is one of the most versatile meeting facilities in the area.  The inviting and relaxing atmosphere provides an opportunity for the university community to get acquainted with one another through informal and formal meetings and gathering outside of the classroom.

 

Lobby Tables


Lobby table spaces are available for use by RSO’s, departments, and contracted or sponsored outside entities. 

Lobby tables are reserved on a first-come-first-serve basis and may only be reserved Monday through Friday.  Each sponsoring organization or department is only permitted to reserve lobby tables three (3) days in a given week.

 Lobby table reservations will be provided one table and two chairs.  Supplemental furnishings, including chairs, are not permitted at lobby tables and may not be removed from other lobby tables or seating areas within the LUC.  Sitting or standing on the tables is prohibited.  Due to the large amount of pedestrian traffic, group members must remain behind their assigned table.  Obstruction of the walk-ways is not permitted. 

Nailing or tacking anything to the table is strictly prohibited.  Posters, signs, and/or banners may not be hung on walls or columns, but may be placed on the front of the table.  An easel may be used, but it must be requested through the LUC Reservations Office and may not be placed in such a way that traffic is impeded.

All provisions provided in the Event Décor section of LUC Policy and Procedures apply to lobby table reservations.

Meeting Rooms

All five (5) of the LUC’s meeting rooms are equipped with an installed projector, screen, and auxiliary sound.  With the exception of 109, all meeting rooms can be setup with tables and/or chairs in a variety of configurations to suit the purposes of the meeting being held.

Multi-Purpose Spaces

The Atkinson Room (ATK) and Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall (ARMAH) are two of the most highly sought-after event spaces on campus.  Whether you are looking to host a large lecture style event, training workshop, or catered banquet event, these two spaces not only accommodate more than 50 guests regardless of setup, but also include installed projection and sound with the option of enhancing the event with a larger sound system or portable/fixed lighting

Due to the high demand for these venues, minimum attendance requirements are in place for these spaces.  The Atkinson Room requires a minimum of 50 guests in attendance and the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall requires a minimum of 100 guests.  Events which occur in these spaces that do not meet the minimum attendance requirements will receive one (1) written warning for an attendance policy violation. Further infractions will result in suspension of reservation privileges in these venues for the requesting department or recognized organization for a period of twelve (12) months and cancellation of existing reservations scheduled in these venues. 

Requests which exceed the basic services of LUC venues or Lyric Theater may result in additional fees and charges.

Guest Speaker Policy

 Frostburg State University encourages RSOs and departments to sponsor guest speakers whose presentation will contribute to the role and mission of the FSU through providing a forum for discussion, debate, investigation and/or artistic expression. Guest speakers provide an opportunity for members of the University community and invited guests to hear and discuss opposing viewpoints on a wide range of issues. Providing a forum in no way implies university approval or endorsement of the views expressed by the sponsored speaker. This statement must be included in all publications and advertising of the event.

 Recognized student organizations whom engage companies, entities or individuals to provide services (including, but not limited to:  guest speakers, presentations, workshops, designers, DJs, performers, etc.) must notify the LUC of such activity a minimum of six (6) weeks prior to the scheduled event.  Contracts for these services must be reviewed and approved by FSU prior to engaging in a contract for these services.

Cabinets will be issued for a period of eleven (11) months running February through December.  RSOs must submit a new request annually by December 15th to be considered for a cabinet space. 

RSO cabinet space in the LUC will be issued based on a random drawing of those RSOs who have submitted a completed Storage Cabinet Request Form each January.  Should more requests exist for storage cabinets than space allows, two RSOs may be assigned to the same storage locker (sharing of space) to allow the maximum usage of the storage cabinet space. 

Organizations no longer issued storage space must vacate the storage cabinet currently occupied by January 31 each year. Should items not be retrieved by a RSO, the items will be considered abandoned property and will be treated as such. 

Should vacancies exist after the random drawing to assign cabinet space, RSOs may apply for a storage cabinet at any time by submitting a completed Storage Cabinet Request Form. 

RSOs with office space or storage space in any location on campus will not be issued a storage cabinet.  Departments will not be issued storage cabinets. 

The only storage provided to RSOs will be within the locker issued to the group.  Items left in any other location within the facility outside of the storage cabinet will be considered abandoned property and will be disposed of. 

LUC reserves the right to change, modify, relocate, and consolidate student organization storage lockers at any time based on operational necessity.  The LUC and Frostburg State University are not liable for the contents of any storage cabinet and items are stored at the individual and/or RSO’s own risk. 

Student Organization Office Access

Those RSOs with office space or access within the LUC must go to the LUC Information Desk to obtain access to their area.  The individual’s Frostburg State University Student ID must be presented and will be held until the key is returned to the Information Desk. 

Recognized student organization advisors must submit a listing of authorized representatives for the organization that should be granted access.  The listing will be submitted annually by February 1 and should be updated as needed by the recognized student organization advisor.  LUC staff will use these lists to verify which students are allowed to have access to the student organization office.
