Based on my experience on organizing conferences in colloeges, you
should never rely on students. Best way is to contact the HOD of some
department or even better have some contact in top management. Then
things move really fast. Else, if you go the students way, you will
end up with loads of problems/ego hassles/issues with the faculty.
Paying for a facility and using it, is a better option as it gives
you lots of freedom.
The hidden harmony is better than the obvious!!
