Can I use a caterer?
Catering is allowed at Northeastern Crossing. The link below provides a list of caterers that the Office of University Events has used in the past and recommends for future use. The list is separated into two categories: full service and drop-off caterers. Full service caterers, in addition to food and beverage, can provide staffing, set-up and break-down services, and tableware.

Drop-off caterers on the other hand, will simply drop-off the food you’ve ordered. You will need to make your own arrangements for serving, all necessary supplies, set-up and clean-up. Make sure to choose a caterer that best suits your event’s needs. Please note that no open flames are allowed during catering. For more information, refer to this site.
