  • For any event with 100+ expected attendees, GTPD security must be requested by the hosting group for the duration of the event, per GT policy (approx. $160.00 for four hour minimum). *If this expense is prohibitive, please contact connect@ibb.gatech.edu

  • All events that take place in IBB spaces must follow GT event guidelines and policies.
  • IBB events receive priority for these spaces and all other requests are reviewed based on availability and association with bioengineering and bioscience.
