To begin please choose the user type that applies to you: 

When you complete the University Event Request Form, it is important to keep in mind that:

  • Priority will be given to regularly scheduled academic courses that are part of a semester.
  • Submitting the University Event Request Form does not constitute a space approval, or event approval. An event permit is issued to approved events and serves as confirmation that a University space has been reserved.
  • All events on campus must have an event permit, which can be obtained through the University Events office, before events are promoted.  
  • Public users are required to provide at least 24-hours notice prior to their use of a Designated Public Forum. The maximum duration of any public user activity, assembly, or demonstration at a Designated Public Forum is two (2) hours.
