The availability of a room and/or any equipment needs such as tables, chairs, tents, etc. is the responsibility of the guest scheduling the function.
To meet our schedule for ordering supplies and staff notification, we request booking your event at least ten days prior to the date of the event. Advance notice will allow Dining Services the opportunity to prepare your function properly for the best results. An additional charge of 10% of the total price of the catering will be assessed for catering scheduled less than 48 hours before the event.
Please call (409) 740-4591 and ask to speak with a catering representative to arrange for your event. A food service request form will be completed and sent to you for your review and approval. An event is not considered scheduled until the food service request form has been approved.
To provide the highest quality service, we ask that you provide an estimated number of guests that will attend your function. A final guaranteed number of guests attending is required three business days prior to the function. You will be billed for the guaranteed number or the actual attendance, if greater than the guarantee.
Cancellations made more than 3 business days prior to the event date will not result in any charges. Cancellations made 3 business days or less prior to the event may be subject to charges on the food service request form.
After Hours and Weekend Service (8:00pm – 6:00am)
An additional charge of $50.00 will be incurred for events requiring catering services between 8:00pm and 6:00am Monday through Friday, or anytime during the weekend when the contract does not exceed $250.00.
Billing and Payments
Upon booking a catering event, University Departments are to provide an account number for the event to be charged. If university funding does not cover your event, a 50% deposit of the contract agreement is required upon booking a catering event. The remaining balance will be due at the beginning of your event. Payment can be made by a credit card or a check payable to “Texas A&M University” and sent to:
Texas A&M University at Galveston
Attn: Accounts Payable
P.O. Box 1675
Galveston, Texas 77553
For your safety and the safety of your guests, we do not allow potentially hazardous food to remain in service beyond 2 hours. We will take care of proper disposal. In addition, prepared foods, which are not consumed at a catering event, may not be removed for the serving area.
Catering prices for continental breakfast buffets are based on a service time of one hour and thirty minutes. Lunch and dinner buffets are based on a service time of two hours. We are happy to extend the service time if needed, please arrange it with the catering representative. (An additional fee may apply).
All events are supplied with disposable silverware, plates, cups, napkins and tablecloths. You may provide your guests with china, glassware, linens and silverware. This is considered a special order, therefore, an additional charge will apply and your arrangements must be made ten days prior to your event. Rental List
