CAMPUS CATERING POLICY FOR ALL REGENT EVENTS AND REGENT-HOSTED OUTSIDE GROUP EVENTS

In light of University-wide precautions surrounding the spread of COVID-19, the Ordinary has updated catering policy for on-campus events for the 2020-2021 school year. As the default, all catering orders will be pre-packaged in individual servings, including drinks and utensils. No self-serve drink/coffee stations are permitted; pre-packaged individual servings are required. Leftover boxed meals may be saved by the group at the conclusion of your event. If ordering hot food, please be precise in your requested delivery time (recommended delivery time 5 minutes before food service/event begins).

For groups desiring buffet-style meals, there are possible accommodations. At least two servers must be hired through the Ordinary; only hired servers may touch the buffet. No leftover food from buffet-style meals may be saved. If a full service drink/coffee station is desired, at least one member of the sponsoring group must man the drink/coffee station with hair up, mask, and gloves on. Alternatively, a server through the Ordinary may be hired.

When the Ordinary is unable to accept a request for catering and outside catering is needed: The same approval process for outside catering is still in place (see below, #5). All outside catering must be individually packaged, or if not individually packaged, there must be at least two designated servers from the sponsoring group wearing their hair up, mask, and gloves. Event guests may not serve themselves food. Costco catering trays and delivery pizza are still acceptable catering options; there must be at least two designated servers wearing their hair up, mask, and gloves. Guests may not serve themselves.

Regarding social distancing during food service: Guests do not need to stand 6 feet away from food tables that are boxed up in individual servings. For buffet tables or drinks with servers, guests must stand 6 feet away except when approaching to be served.

The following procedures provide step-by-step instructions to event planners requesting catering services for their special event.

  1. Read the Regent University Campus Catering Policy.
  2. Obtain approval for on-campus catering services from your cost center manager/authorized signer.
  3. Determine if the event is appropriate for the Regent Ordinary or the Founders Inn. For Founders Inn, contact Kathy Ruley at 757.352.4849; she will negotiate best pricing with Founders Inn if you are using Regent funds. If you are using non-Regent funds, you may use the caterer of your choice (please see the Eligibility section of the Catering Policy).
  4. If using the Regent Ordinary submission of the Catering Request Form is required.
    Please note the following:

    • Request forms must be submitted to the Regent Ordinary two weeks prior to event date in order for the Ordinary to best serve your event.
    • An estimate of the number of attendees is required at the time the request form is submitted. The final guaranteed count is due seven days prior to event date.
    • Be sure to indicate on the form whether your menu is flexible.
    • After the form is submitted you will receive an automatic confirmation to the email you provided. Keep this for your records.
    • The Ordinary will respond to your request within three business days:
      • The Ordinary will forward you a copy of your original catering request. Within the forwarded request form there is an additional section titled “Regent Ordinary Response” where they will indicate whether the event is ‘accepted’, ‘accepted with modifications’ or ‘declined’.
      • If ‘accepted’ or ‘accepted with modifications’ the event is placed in the Ordinary’s master calendar and an estimated cost provided to you. If event is ‘declined’, a reason will be included for your information.
    • At the conclusion of the event the Ordinary will determine the total cost to be charged to your budget cost center. Your original catering request will be forwarded back to you once again. The total cost information will be included in the section titled “Business Office” and copied to the Business Office so they can complete the interdepartmental transfer of funds.
  5. If your request is declined by the Ordinary and the Founders Inn is not suitable for your event you may then use an outside caterer. The Purchasing department must approve all outside catering. A minimum of three comparative quotes are required. A quote, contract, or banquet order is required. Please access the Purchasing website and contact the Purchasing department with any questions.

The following procedures provide step-by-step instructions to event planners requesting the Regent Ordinary’s catering services for their Regent-Hosted Outside Group event.

  1. Read the Regent University Campus Catering Policy.
  2. Determine if Regent University or the hosted outside group will be paying for the catering; determine if the event is more appropriate for Regent Ordinary catering or the Founders Inn.
  3. If Regent University is paying, obtain approval for catering services from your cost center manager. Work with Chef for Ordinary’s catering; contact Kathy Ruley at 757.352.4849 for Founders Inn catering as she will negotiate best pricing with Founders Inn.
  4. If the outside group is paying, they will work directly with the Ordinary or Founders Inn. They will pay Founders Inn directly, but for Ordinary’s charges, work with Administrative Services to have the charges added to the central invoice. If the outside group is paying for other facets of the event, those charges will also go on the central invoice.
  5. If using the Regent Ordinary, submit the Catering Request Form for Regent-funded events; submit the Outside Group Catering Request form for all others. Please note the following:
    • Request forms must be submitted to the Regent Ordinary three weeks prior to event date in order for the Ordinary to best serve the event.
    • The estimated number of attendees is required at the time the request form is submitted. The final guaranteed count is due seven days prior to event date.
    • Indicate on the form whether the menu is flexible.
    • After the form is submitted an automatic confirmation will be sent to the email provided.
    • The Ordinary will respond within three business days.
      • The Ordinary will forward you a copy of your original catering request. Within the forwarded request form there is an additional section titled “Regent Ordinary Response” where they will indicate whether the event is ‘accepted’, ‘accepted with modifications’ or ‘declined’.
      • If ‘accepted’ or ‘accepted with modifications’ the event is placed in the Ordinary’s master calendar and an estimated cost provided to you. If event is ‘declined’, a reason will be included for your information.
    • For Regent-funded outside group events: at the conclusion of the event the Ordinary will determine the total cost to be charged to your budget cost center. Your original catering request will be forwarded back to you once again. The total cost information will be included in the section titled “Business Office” and copied to the Business Office so they can complete the interdepartmental transfer of funds.
    • For Regent-hosted outside groups with the outside group paying for the catering, tax will be added, and payment is due by cash, check or credit card on the day of the event – no exceptions.
  6. If your request is declined by the Ordinary and the Founders Inn is not suitable for your event you may then use an outside caterer. Purchasing must approve all outside catering. A minimum of three comparative quotes/contracts/banquet orders are required. Please access the Purchasing website and contact the Purchasing department with any questions.

Regent University offers the Regent Ordinary as its on-campus dining facility – a food court-style restaurant located in the Student Center. The menu includes an assortment of breakfast, lunch and dinner items. The Ordinary can meet office, reception or banquet-sized catering needs. For special event catering, food items may be ordered either from the regular menu or the catering menu.

The Regent Ordinary has five meeting spaces within the Student Center capable of serving private functions:

  • Main Dining Room: 96 person capacity
  • Fountain View Room: 40 person capacity
  • Loft: 32 person capacity
  • Conference Room 118: 10 person capacity
  • Patio and Adjoining Woods: 100 person capacity

While the primary focus is serving the Regent community through direct service in the Ordinary, catering for approximately 150 people is available elsewhere on the Regent campus, depending on the menu selected. Buffet-style functions and stand-up receptions may allow for a greater number of attendees as they are more manageable than plated meals. If there are questions regarding the Ordinary, please call 757.352.4924.

The Founders Inn is located on Regent’s campus. It is an upscale hotel and resort suitable for any of your conference, banquet or reception planning needs. You may also contract with Founders Inn to cater your event held on the Regent University campus.

All catered functions held by outside groups on the Regent campus are required to use one of Regent’s two exclusive caterers: The Regent Ordinary or the Founders Inn.

Procedure

After receiving confirmation of your facility use application and contracted room, submit a Catering Request Form to order catering from the Ordinary for your special event. The Regent Ordinary requires a Catering Request Form to be submitted at least three weeks prior to the event date (submission of the form further in advance is appreciated). The estimated number of guests is required at the time the Catering Request Form is submitted for planning and budgeting purposes. A final count of guests is due within seven days of the event.

If you are planning to use the Founders Inn, contact them at 757.366.5814.

Cancellations

The Regent Ordinary requires a minimum of 72 hours’ notice in the event of a cancellation. If cancellation notice is less than 72 hours the customer will be charged a 50% cancellation fee.

Payment

All outside groups are charged tax (Virginia: 6%, Virginia Beach: 5.5%). Payment is required by cash, check or credit card on or before the day of the event – no exceptions.

We strive to give you the best possible value for your catering dollar. Please contact us if you have any questions.
