University Events Guidelines

Important Reminders

 It is important to understand you are submitting a REQUEST for events and/or space. Reservation of space and event approvals are not guaranteed for every request.

 

Priority is given to academic courses. Event space requests will be confirmed after the following dates when scheduled in academic classrooms: December 1st (spring request dates), April 1st (summer request dates), and May 1st (fall request dates).

 

Requestors may receive two confirmations (one for space and one for event approval) if the space requested is not managed by the Office of University Events.
