SFU Fee and Usage Policies

The IRMACS Centre is an ideal location for meetings and events including interviews, recruitment or outreach activities, remote thesis defenses, training or career events, and as a seminar series location.

The physical space, the technical infrastructure and the expert technical support personnel are available at a modest cost to SFU when they are not being used for Centre related research activity.

Each room comes fully equipped with standard furniture and AV and Collaboration technologies (view each room's assets), and includes basic technical support as part of the rental package. The IRMACS Technical support team also facilitates many other collaboration services particularly if you have an existing account with a service including Bluejeans, Adobe Connect, LiveMeeting, and WebEx. Specialized technical support is available for an additional fee. Hourly rates include 15-30 minutes of set up time depending on the room or event.

Cancellation Policy:  Notice of cancellation must be received in writing to reception@irmacs.sfu.ca 24 hours prior to booking commencement time or full facility costs will be charged.
