booking information


All events must be booked using the form below. LU Sound can not work an event if this form has not been filled out and submitted, regardless of whether you have contacted us in another manner.

For insurance reasons and in accordance with Lehigh University policy, LU Sound is only permitted to work events on Lehigh's campus and only during the times permitted by the Dean of Students. Therefore, we are not permitted to work any events after the last day of classes for a semester. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.

Booking must be done two weeks prior to the scheduled event. In the event that two weeks notice is not given, we will do our best to accommodate your requests. However, there are no guarantees.

Cancellations must be made at least three days prior to the event by e-mailing one of our officers or by calling Marianne Deutsch in the Office of Student Activities at ext. 8-6670. If you choose to cancel by e-mail, do not consider your event canceled until you have received a reply e-mail confirming that we have received your cancellation.

LU Sound reserves the right to bill your account regardless of whether or not an event is worked if these policies are not adhered to.
