Planning your event

Event Planning

Our professional, experienced staff will gladly work with you in planning the details of your event.  Starting with selecting the right venue to the finishing touches, our team will make your event memorable.

Booking Your Event

Your menu should be finalized and booked a minimum of two weeks in advance.  You can speak with a member of our team by calling (519) 253-3000 ext. 3277 or 3276. 

Menu Selection

Our extensive catering menu is a great starting point for your dining selections. Our team will gladly create a special menu to suit your event and your budget.

Please note that not all menu items are suitable in all locations, due to the level of cooking facilities in the building. Our staff will assist you in selecting suitable items when necessary.

Please advise us of any allergies or special diets when selecting the menu. 

Off Campus Catering

Our catering team has an excellent reputation for catering events off campus. Contact our Catering Office for more information.  Additional charges may apply for off-site catering.

Guaranteed Numbers

When booking your event you will be asked to give an estimate of the number of guests you expect will be in attendance.  A final guarantee of the number of guests attending is required one week prior to your event.

Delivery Charges

Minimum orders are $75.00. A delivery charge of $10.00 is applied on all orders. Statutory Holidays are subject to a $50.00 delivery charge (does not apply to events in Vanier Hall).

Cancellation Policy

If cancellation of your event occurs less than two weeks in advance, you are subject to payment in full.

Room Rental Fee

A room rental fee will be charged for all non-university functions.  Please see our meeting room rate page. 


For a non-university group we require a minimum deposit of $1,000 or 50% of the estimated invoice, whichever is less, to be paid at the time you sign your contract to guarantee your room.  The remaining balance of your account is due one week prior to your event. Payments can be made by: Visa, MasterCard, debit card, bank draft or money order.

Tentative Reservations
We can tentatively hold a room for your event for up to two weeks.  However, if we receive a request by another party for your date, we will contact you to ask for your decision.  If you would like to confirm, we will require your deposit by the end of the next working day. 
All food and beverage prices are subject to an increase, based on inflation rates, commodity increases and collective agreements.  All prices quoted in the catering package as well as prices quoted on proposals and activity confirmation sheets are subject to this increase.
The prices in this package apply to events held on the University of Windsor campus.  Additional charges may apply for off-site catering.
