Appearances are booked on a first-come, first-served basis and are dependent upon the mascots’ availability. It is highly recommended that you submit your request at least four weeks prior to your event. Please do not submit an appearance request more than three months in advance.
After completing the Appearance Request Form, you will receive an initial e-mail informing you that we have received your request within a few days. Please note- this e-mail is not a confirmation. Confirmation e-mails will be sent with a price quote once we have confirmed performer availability.
Rates below are for one mascot (YoUDee or Baby Blue). An additional $75 will be charged to include both mascots. Payment information must be provided in advance of the appearance. Additional travel charges will apply for events off campus.
Internal UD Department & RSO events can be paid through a JV transfer. You will need to complete the internal payment form included in your confirmation with price quote. External payments will be submitted online via check or credit card at www.udel.edu/youdeepay.
*Do not submit payment until you receive a confirmation e-mail, which will include the final price quote.
