Updates to PSU Operations & Hours
Important Operating Hours Updates
*Effective August 2022
The Plemmons Student Union provides services and space to the campus community at free or heavily-subsidized rates. However, external factors, including no Student Union fee increases since 2018, unfunded mandates for professional staff pay raises, and inflation are impacting operational and maintenance costs. With the need to update pay rates for our student employees, the PSU is now forced to make some difficult operational and financial decisions to address these issues for the upcoming year.
The Plemmons Student Union will be operating with the hours posted on our Facility Hours page for the upcoming 2022-2023 Academic Year. These hours represent a reduction from past years. That reduction is primarily on weekends.
The Plemmons Student Union will be closed on holiday weekends and state holidays.
If you have a reservation confirmed on a date/time when the Student Union is now scheduled to be closed, your event is now subject to the fees outlined in the Usage Guide and Policy Manual of the Plemmons Student Union. We realize the new hours and rates will have an impact on a reservation holder’s decision to be able to host their event in the facility. Therefore, we are trying to give as much notice as possible. Reservations held during operating hours will not be subject to the fees that have always been charged for staffing outside those hours.
Fees associated with a reservation not made by a University Funded Entity will be due five business days before the event. Failure to pay fees by the due date, without prior approval for an extension or other arrangement, may result in the reservation being canceled.
Fees associated with a reservation made by a University Funded Entity will be due within five business days after the event.
We hope that all of our campus partners will understand the various priorities that are being managed with this move.
As always, you are welcome to reach out to us at any point.

Director | Plemmons Student Union
