Dress Code

Generally speaking, SPS staff should wear the black SPS polo provided with suitable pants and shoes to work in.  For certain events that are more high profile, you may be asked to be in more professional attire (e.g. dress shirt, dress pants, no jeans).  We will make it clear when scheduling if you need to dress up for a work shift.

The Office & “The Cage”

Located in the basement of the GSU, our address is 775 Commonwealth Avenue, Rm B-08, Boston, MA 02215.  The main office number is 617-358-3373 and our main e-mail is busps@bu.edu.  The office is a shared space for a lot of people.  The Production Manager is assigned to the smaller office, while the Technical Directors share the large office workspace and the rest of the student management team use the front office area.  “The Cage” is located further down the basement hall and is the main storage area for SPS equipment.

Keeping the office clean and neat is a priority.  Please be mindful that this is a shared work space and treat it with care.  SPS staff will be given a key that works for both the office & the Cage.  Always make sure that doors are locked when you leave the office or the Cage.  The SPS Equipment Manager will give very strict guidelines & instructions about equipment storage in the Cage and it is each person’s responsibility to follow them.
