Contracts and Vendor Forms

Student Organization Contract Process

An interactive session on this topic will be available soon! For now, please refer to the links below.

Northwestern University policy requires all contracts for Registered Student Organizations be submitted to the Campus Life office no less than two weeks before a scheduled event for review and signature. At least six weeks notice is required for any contracts related to events involving alcohol or payments in excess of $25,000.

All contracts must be submitted in person to the contract drop-off box in the SOURCE (Norris Center, 3rd floor) using a cover sheet signed by the RSO advisor. The RSO will be notified when a contract is ready for pick-up or if more information is needed. Failure to follow these policies may result in the cancellation of a proposed event.

There are designated weekly Contract Hours for students to come into the SOURCE and ask any clarifying questions about contracts. Jean Voss has the following hours to answer your contract questions:
