The Digital Technology Center
(DTC) is pleased to make its conference rooms available to the
University of Minnesota community. However, the DTC is not a conference
service provider. The DTC's rooms are provided free to eligible users on
the condition that the rooms are cleaned and returned to their original
configuration after use. If the rooms are not returned to their original
configuration, a service fee of $150 per day may be charged. In addition,
the sponsoring department is responsible for any damages to DTC equipment,
furnishings, or facilities incurred during the event.
