Parties in Wilson Commons

All parties in Wilson Commons must be registered through the Event Registration Process on CCC.


  1. The sponsoring group will schedule a meeting with the director of Wilson Commons and/or the sponsoring groups' staff advisor(s) at least 2 weeks prior to the party.
  2. Through the event registration process, security will determine the appropriate level of security needed and the charges incurred.
  3. An additional student Building Manager will be specifically assigned to monitor the party. The sponsoring group is required to cover the cost of the extra building manager, and the cost of the primary building manager if the party continues past 1AM.
  4. The sponsoring group is responsible for creating signs that designate party entrances, exits, and Wilson Commons party rules.
  5. Representatives from the group will meet with the student building manager prior to opening the doors to the party. At this meeting, the building manager will set up several times during the event to meet with group representatives.


  1. Group representatives must monitor all possible points of entry to the party at all times. Any guest entering the party must have a valid form of college identification. ID's will be checked for all guests. No exceptions.

If the party continues after 1AM, the sponsoring group will ensure party members are contained in the designated areas of the building.
