Summer Conference Reservations

Our summer conference reservation guide is a short four-step process and we are happy to provide accommodations, exceptions, and support to others looking to reserve a space at Fresno State Housing. Outside of overnight housing, Fresno State offers meeting spaces and other areas for others to use. Moreover, we also offer linen services, maintenance requests, and all-you-can eat dining at the University Dining Hall.

For detailed information on our process, refer to the guide below. For any questions or concerns that aren’t included in our website, feel free to contact us through our contact page and we can connect you with someone who can help.

We hope to see you soon.

Our Quick Reservation Guide

1. Conference Request Form

A Preliminary Request Form must be submitted in order to review our availability.

After receipt of your Conference Request Form, you will be notified whether or not facilities are available and a reservation is made.

All individual guest reservations and payments must be handled by the group. No individual reservations will be accepted.

A tentative number of guests is provided by the group leader when submitting the Preliminary Request Form. A confirmed number of guests are provided by the group leader a minimum of 14 days prior to the group’s arrival date. This confirmed number may not exceed the tentative number of guests provided without verifying availability with Student Housing.

2. Agreement

A “Summer Facilities Housing License Agreement” must be returned 90 days prior to the group’s arrival date by the group leader along with the 10% deposit for returning groups/20% deposit for new groups for the number of beds reserved on the Preliminary Request Form.

Groups are required to carry and provide Student Housing with proof of liability insurance unless the group is affiliated with Fresno State and the license agreement is signed by an authorized sponsoring CSU representative. Licensee agrees to maintain in full force and effect during the entire term of the Agreement acceptable general liability insurance in the sum of at least One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) per occurrence for injury to or death to any person, and in the sum of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) per occurrence for damage or loss to property, and providing for an aggregate coverage amount no less than Two Million Dollar ($2,000,000) per occurrence.

Licensee shall provide Licensor with certificates of insurance evidencing the satisfaction of the above-referenced insurance coverage requirements, no less than thirty (30) days prior to the beginning of Licenses use of the licensed premises. Failure to timely provide such certificate(s) of insurance shall entitle Licensor to revoke this Agreement, without any liability to Licensee.

Final Arrangements

3. Conference Discussion

A Student Housing Summer Conference Supervisor will contact the group leader approximately 21 days prior to the arrival date to discuss the following items and any additional questions or concerns:
Groups specify in advance a specific time period for their group check-in and check-out (see Arrival Time section). The check-in time, location, and process will be confirmed and discussed. During the check-in process, each guest signs off on the check-in roster and receives their room key.

A Student Housing Facilities representative will check the rooms for damages prior to each group’s arrival and upon each group’s departure. If you would like to schedule pre and post-damage walks, the assigned Summer Conference Supervisor will contact you to discuss possible times. The selected time is based upon the departure time of the prior group and the arrival time of the group following your group’s departure.

 If you have made arrangements for cafeteria-style meals, guaranteed numbers will be discussed.

If your group chooses to have the linen package (and your group is staying for a minimum of one week), a linen exchange date and time will need to be determined prior to your arrival. Blankets are not exchanged.

A copy of your group’s itinerary will be requested so that Student Housing’s Front Desk Staff can answer a guest’s questions after their arrival.

4. Insurance & Roster

Status of room deposit and outstanding balance will be reviewed. Proof of liability insurance will be requested and must be submitted 30 days prior to the group arrival date unless the license agreement is signed by a sponsoring California State University, Fresno authorized representative
