Staging and Large Events

Work with our Tech Director to take your event to the next level. BSSL has direct access to multiple vendors whose equipment, paired with BSSL labor, can elevate your next large event for a fraction of the price of a traditional equipment rental.

Please note:
BSSL does not do staging anywhere in the University Union. For stage questions for an event in the University Union, please speak with the University Union Operations Manager: office UU-205W, phone number (607) 777-3300.


BSSL rents stage and roof solutions from outside vendors. The decks are 8′ x 4′, and can be assembled in rectangular increments of those numbers. Stages are billed by base price + man hours, meaning that the price varies based on how long it takes to build and take down the stage. Factors determining price include size, location, etc.

Our most common stage dimensions are as follows:
24′ wide X 16′ deep X 3 or 4′ high
32′ or 28′ wide X 24′ Deep X 4′ high 
36′ or 44′ wide X 32′ deep X 4 ‘high 

BSSL can also acquire barricade for crowd control needs. We can acquire: 

  • Steel Barricade
  • Aluminum Barricade
  • Bike Rack Barricade

Large Events

We recommend that you speak directly with our Technical Director at least a month (preferably more) prior to your event to plan out your equipment needs. Shoot us an email to set up a meeting.
