You are free to use whichever catering vendor you choose. We recommend our on–campus caterer, Fresh Fork. Here is the link to their catering website. Outside caterers may be used provided the selected caterer can provide UHAA with a certificate of liability before the event date. Caterers who do not provide proof of liability insurance will not be allowed to serve at the UH Alumni Center. Here is the link to the Temporary Food Dealers Permit.
There are 40 parking spaces you can reserve in front of the UH Alumni Center. You would do this through UH Parking & Transportation by contacting 832–842–1097. Additional parking options can also be arranged in nearby lots and/or garages. Here is the link to the Special Events Parking form.
You must have security at your event if you have alcohol being served.
The University of Houston Alumni Association (UHAA) does not hold a liquor license. Alcohol may be distributed only through a caterer holding a valid liquor license permit and valid liquor liability insurance coverage. Caterer must provide proof of coverage before event date. UHPD is required to provide security at events where alcohol is served. Here is the link to the Special Events Security form.
There is an on–site kitchen that may be used for prep work. Included: refrigerator, two tables, multiple outlets, running water, and ice machine.
