Any damage (e.g., stains on the carpet or the upholstered chairs) will be noted and the reserving department will be responsible for paying the additional cleaning fee. Following your event, the room must be restored to the standard position (see the room layout diagram PDF). Events are often scheduled back-to-back, so it is important you restore the room to the original standard arrangement and pick up any trash on the floor. Leave the trash in the trash cans and do not set it in the hall.|

|17. There may be concurrent events in the Royce Hall Auditorium. It is recommended you contact the UCLA Events Office at ext. 58989 or search the Happenings Events Calendar at www.happenings.ucla.edu before booking your reservation to ensure other events will not have an adverse effect on your event. The Morris Humanities Seminar Room is adjacent to the auditorium, and performances can occassionally be heard from inside the Morris Humanities Seminar Room depending on the nature of the performance. The auditorium schedule, particularly rehearsal schedules, tends to change at the last minute. This is a fact of life in Royce Hall. If you feel potential last-minute auditorium performances or rehearsals will be a problem, it is suggested you rent a microphone from AVS to ensure your speakers can be heard in the Morris Humanities Seminar Room.|
