I have a meeting tomorrow with an university club manager regarding events that I would like to throw. I have never done this before - any tips/tricks on what I should bring, what I should have prepared and how to negotiate the best pay for me?

I sent him a brief proposal outlining my ideas already, so he has a good idea of the theme, the target audience and the general vision I have for the nights. I am going in tomorrow to discuss the 'details', which I'm assuming is whether I'm going to take a percentage of bar sales (what is the average, by the way?) and how much they're going to contribute to the night.
I have around three weeks to plan this event. He offered to hire a DJ and do the posters and tickets - is there anything I should keep in mind? Also, because I'm a student, I don't have to pay a rental fee for the university space.
I'm kind of jumping into this head first. I've done events before but never this scale or in this setting. Any tips or hints will be greatly appreciated!
