The Stamp is a self-support unit on campus. This means that the department is responsible for generating revenues, and all revenues are applied back to the cost of operating the department. No general funds from the University are used to support the Stamp except for some functions in the Campus Programs. Funding for the Stamp comes from four sources: student fees, revenue from room reservations, facility rent from various tenants, and revenue-generating services and programs within the facility.
The amount of student fees paid to support the Stamp in FY 2009-10 is $260.70 per year for full-time undergraduate students. This fee (along with fees to support the Athletic Department, Campus Recreation Services and the Golf Course, Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, Nyumburu Cultural Center, and the ShuttleUM) is paid as part of the registration process.
Rooms are provided at no charge to student organizations in support of their routine organizational meetings. Rates vary for the use of rooms for other purposes according to the size and other features of the specific facility. Student organizations and University departments are given a discounted rate for all spaces in the Stamp.
McDonald’s, Panda Express, Mail Boxes, Etc., Media Express, Maryland Food Coop, Chevy Chase Bank, University Book Center, and Dining Services Operations are independent operations located in the Stamp. Each of these retail outlets pays rent to the Stamp for use of their space. Administrative units not supported by the Stamp fee also pay rent for their office space.
Revenues from Hoff Theater admissions, sales in the Ticket Office, bowling and billiards fees, and other activities in the Stamp also generate revenue for the department.
The revenues are all applied to the operation of the Stamp. This includes staff salaries and benefits, housekeeping and maintenance costs, utilities, costs associated with programs and services offered, marketing, and renovation costs. The largest single expense is for the repayment of the debt incurred for the renovation underway in the Stamp.
For general information about the Stamp, contact the Information Desk at 301-314-3375. It is located on the first floor of the Stamp. For floor plan information, or restroom locations, check out our online building information.
Questions involving opening a business in the Student Union should be directed to Steve Gnadt, Associate Director of Facilities for the Adele H. Stamp Student Union. He may be reached at 301-314-8490.
