Student Organizations:   Your table must be used for display purposes only unless it’s a student organization sponsored fundraiser with a fundraiser approval form. The approval form but shown if requested at any time.

Where do I pick up my table? All you need to do is check in with the Campus Center Consultants located at the front desk of the Ronald Tutor Campus Center. You will need to leave a USC Student ID with the staff to check out your table and take it to Trousdale Parkway.

Where is tabling allowed? Tabling is only allowed on Trousdale Parkway along the western edge of Alumni Park. Tables cannot be set up on the grassy median or Bovard (west) side of Trousdale. No exceptions. Tabling includes a table and 2 chairs only. No canopy or tent. No activations. Tabling is NOT allowed in the USC Village. If you are tabling in an unauthorized location, you will be asked to move immediately.

Do I have to return my table? Please return the table and chair(s) to the front desk when your rental is complete. Failing to properly return tables could result in a suspension of tabling privileges or a fine equal to the cost of a new table.

How many days can my student organization table? You can table for two (2) consecutive days per week. You can not exceed six (6) days per month.

I’m a recognized student organization. Can I sell or pass out food at my table? Yes, you can sell food as long as you’ve received approval after completing a food & beverage approval form. TES does not approve food or beverages. If approved, a fundraiser approval form is also required when selling food.  If you’d like to pass out food, a food & beverage approval is needed. Please have approved documents at the table and ready to display, if needed. The university does not allow homemade items to be sold or passed out.
