Academic Events

Internal clients enjoy discounts on bookings

We review each faculty, student and alumni event on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Conference Services to learn whether your plans qualify for internal discounts.

Academic Event Bookings

Academic Events are eligible for a discount on meeting rooms and event spaces. Additionally, when you pay by journal entry, you do not pay Harmonized Sales Tax (HST).

Alumni and seniors receive a 10% discount on accommodations. And, when you pay by journal entry, Academic Events do not pay HST or the Marketing Levy on accommodations.  

Student Bookings

Students do not pay for meeting rooms if they are booking as part of a ratified student society. Student event space is usually booked with Campus Bookings.

Any student with a valid Student ID will receive the student rate on accommodations.
