Buffalo State is very firm with code compliance and takes it very seriously. Each room has specific codes to adhere to, such as maximum capacities. It is very important to have a large enough room for every event for safety reasons.
If an excessive turnout is expected for an event, a room large enough must be reserved and utilized. However, if few people are attending, even if a larger room might be preferred, it may be necessary to have a smaller room in order to ensure space for larger events.
