Students may visit the  Student Services webpage or stop by their office at 280 Simon for more information on event planning, group funding and Student Services’ policies regarding purchasing and reimbursement.  Please contact the Business Services Office if there are questions regarding which form to use or finding out the status of a reimbursement by emailing  lawstudentreimb@law.berkeley.edu.

 

If your student group would like to plan an event such as a gala, speaker talk, seminar or conference, please use the Student Event Planning Certification Form . Be sure to complete the Student Group Information section and provide a business purpose for your event. In the Description section, include vendor information such as the name of vendor and a brief description of what is to be rented or purchase i.e. facility/event space, goods or services along with the estimate of the expense.Once those sections are complete, you may submit the form to Student Services Administrator, Kristin Haas, in RM 280 Simon. 

We received an invoice from the vendor for a service, can a member of the student group pay with their card and seek reimbursement at a later date? Do not pay for a third party vendor or service with your personal credit card. Reach out to Student Services regarding any service contracts you would like to enter on behalf of your student group. They can arrange payment through the University’s procurement system, BearBuy.  It is against University policy to enter service contracts or bring vendors and services on to campus without approval from the University’s Purchasing Authority, Building Management, and without a Certificate of Liability Insurance or waiver from Risk Services. If a service invoice is generated, immediately contact Student Services, please do not attempt to pay the expense out of pocket and seek reimbursement.
