Space and Equipment Rentals

Under certain circumstances, the University may agree to rent space or facilities (including equipment) to third parties.

The University-Industry Liaison Office will prepare Space or Facilities Rental Agreements that have terms 6 months or less and are non-renewable. The University Treasury Department prepares Agreements that are greater than 6 months in duration, and may be renewable.

The researcher whose space or facilities are being rented must disclose any conflicts of interest to the relevant Department Head and Faculty Dean prior to execution of the Agreement. Approval from the relevant Department Head is required.
