Weather Policy


Thunder and Lighting

Once you hear thunder and or see lightning, you must seek shelter until 30 minutes from the last sound of thunder and or vision of lightning. When you first see lightning or hear thunder, that is the time to take action.  Go to a building or a vehicle. Lightning often precedes rain, so don’t wait for the rain to begin before suspending activities. Groups are expected to adhere to this policy independently in addition to following the directions of any RecWell staff member that enforces this policy.  Failure to follow this policy or directives from RecWell staff will be documented and may impact eligibility for future reservation requests.  Each weather situation is unique and it may be necessary to cancel the event instead of delaying the event.

 

Weather Delay

The Department of Recreation and Wellness reserves the right to determine safety of the playing field based on weather.  Groups are expected to adhere to the Thunder and Lightning Policy.  Groups are also to understand that periods of heavy rain may soak the playing field enough to make it hazardous both for the participants and for the care of the field.  RecWell administration reserves the right to cancel field use based on assessing weather impact to participant safety or field care.


General Reservation Policies


Facility Use Agreement & Fees

Events and facility reservations require a Facility Use Agreement (FUA).  To complete a FUA, the following are typically required: certificate of insurance, proof of tax exemption (if applicable), detailed schedule of event scope and needs, returned signed agreement. Rental rates apply except to current RSO, UNF Student Government, Osprey Life and Production events.  These groups may be invoiced for direct-costs only.  Please note: UNF student programming is priority over external (public) events.   

 

Insurance & Tax Exemption

A certificate of insurance is required to complete a contract for an event or facility reservation. Sales tax will be applied to all reservations unless a current certificate of exemption is provided.

 

Parking

A valid parking permit is required for all UNF events and facility reservations.  Parking fees are determined based on the scope and schedule of the event and will be part of the agreement and final invoice.

 

Registered Student Organizations (RSO)

An RSO may request RecWell field and room reservations within the current semester.  RSOs are recognized as active during the Fall & Spring semesters. Please note: RecWell fields and rooms are not available for reservation within the first two weeks of the semester; requests for the current semester may be submitted online once the semester begins and the third week of the semester is when bookings will start; RSO must be in good standing to be eligible to book space; Club Sports teams are required to attend the Club Sport meeting and complete paperwork through the RecWell Business Office located in the Student Wellness Complex, building 62, suite 1200.

 

Concessions

Weather

UNF Recreation and Wellness reserves the right to cancel field use based on assessing weather impact to participant safety or field care.
