Internal Catering - Charging to an Oxy Account

Valuable information about Campus Event Planning Resources is available here.

Catering a department meeting or event at Oxy is easy. To avoid late charges and guarantee your menu, be sure to submit your Request for event services (Oxy only) 10 business days before your event. If you already know your menu, submit it with your event plan. If not, check the in-house menu to decide what to serve, and then e-mail to place your request.
