What if I have booked and paid for room(s) in Stollery and I want to cancel the room(s)? Do I get a refund?
As soon as you know you will need to cancel a room, call the Conference Facilities and Building Manager at the contact number provided on your booking sheet to let this individual know of such. If your cancellation notice is less than 15 calendar days from the date of your booking, no refund can be issued as noted on the application form. If your cancellation is 15 calendar days or greater from the date of your booking, management will provide you with a full refund.

How many people can your facility accommodate?
Depending on what furniture requirements you need and whether or not there will be alcohol at your function will determine how many people will fit in each room. The following chart outlines the maximum number of people that are allowed in each room if there are no chairs and tables in the room. The numbers decrease as the number of tables and chairs that you require increase.

Is your facility licensed for holding liquored events? If so, how do we arrange for liquor and liquor permits on campus?
Yes, we are licensed to hold liquored events. Both liquor orders and liquor permits can be processed through Housing and Food services on campus. They will deliver your order to where you need it to go campus-wide. Their contact number is 780-492-1035.

Will someone be on call to help me with technical difficulties?
If you feel that you might require some technical assistance, we suggest you book a technician in advance to be there for you as we cannot guarantee assistance on short/immediate notice. To book a technician for your event please call Technical Resource Services (TRG) on campus at 780-492-3923.

Will someone set the room up for us or do we do this on our own?
We hire a contractor to come in and set up your function for you if a diagram/description is provided to us 10 days prior to your event. If no diagram/description is provided in time, you will be responsible for setting up the booked room(s) on your own. There is no one on call to move furniture around during your function, and you will therefore have to do so on your own; however, access to our storage room if more tables/chairs are needed is included in the price of your booking.

What is included in the price of our booking?
Access to our kitchen, access to our storage room (extra tables and chairs), some easels, all technical equipment that is attached to the room, and one initial room set up and cleaning. The Building Manager can assist you with building-related issues (temperatures, maintenance issues) when he/she is available.

Is parking included in the price of our booking through the Stollery Executive Development Centre?
No, it isn’t. Parking Services on campus is a separate department from the Alberta School of Business. Daily parking permits are available at the ticket dispensers/booths for people to purchase. During summer months, Parking Services is not extremely busy in lots N or U. There should be adequate space to accommodate any parking; however, this is unfortunately not guaranteed. All bookings are subject to space availability. For larger functions of 10 or more guests, this requires significant lead time, and parking space may be dispersed over several locations depending on the parking location being requested and the time and date involved.

Parking Services on campus can be contacted as follows:
