What is Auxiliary Enterprises?
An auxiliary enterprise is a non-academic entity (business) that exists predominantly to furnish goods or services to students, faculty, staff and guests and that charges a fee directly related to, although not necessarily equal to, the cost of the goods or services. The mission of Howard University’s Auxiliary Enterprises is to enhance the campus experience for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests by providing non-academic services compatible with the University’s missions and goals in support of the educational program.
Howard University’s auxiliary enterprises includes dining services, catering, vending services, bookstores, laundry facilities, post office, graphics and printing services, hotel/travel services and transportation and parking. The department also oversees University trademark and licensing compliance, the one card program, and coordinates event and conference services and short-term vending concessions.
Howard’s auxiliary enterprises reinvest proceeds back into the facilities, services, and programs that enhance the quality of life and work. When you do business on campus…you’re investing in You!
