  5. There is no charge for room usage.
  6. Any group using the Globe Room or Elvey Auditorium is responsible for maintaining the space and addressing their specific meeting needs.  The GI Operations office is not staffed to provide customer service for groups outside of the Geophysical Institute (IT setup, conference phone setup, or room arrangement).
