Contemplation Space

FIC 316: Use of the contemplation space for practice relgious obligations and rites has all-day priority. Other uses for this space can occur on a first-come, first-serve basis when available. Prairie graphics on glass are in memory of Dr. Lloyd Bullerman.

Food and Drinks

*FIC 277: Absolutely no food or drink is allowed! Even if the drink has a lid, they are not allowed.

Food and drinks are only allowed in designated areas.

Parking on Nebraska Innovation Campus

Visitor parking is located in the parking lot north of NIC Conference Center on Transformation Drive.

Scheduling

General hours for room reservations are 7:00 am-5:30 pm Monday-Friday. For room reservation requests outside the general hours, please allow a two business day approval time to ensure building access.

When making requests, please consider any additional time needed for setting up prior to the event and tearing down afterwards. This needs to be factored into the start and end times.

FIC room reservations may not be scheduled on Nebraska Innovation Campus during home football game days.

Rules and Safety

Events must be conducted in an orderly fashion and within the confines of the assigned room in order to not disturb the classes and offices located in the surrounding areas.

Rooms are to be left in the same orderly fashion in which they are originally found. Equipment is to be turned off, white boards cleared, refuse picked up, and the furniture returned to its original configuration before leaving the space.

Rooms remain unlocked; therefore, DO NOT leave any personal or departmental belongings unattended in rooms; University of Nebraska-Lincoln cannot be held responsible if anything is lost, damaged, or stolen.

All special events held in FIC rooms are subject to the Youth Activity Safety Policy.

Face Covering Policy

 As it has done throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Nebraska–Lincoln continues to follow the most recent guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department.

 Per the CDC’s Guidance for Fully Vaccinated People, UNL students, faculty and staff who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear face coverings, but are strongly encouraged to do so indoors. Current CDC guidance advises that fully vaccinated individuals should wear face coverings indoors in areas of substantial or high transmission.
