Event Registration Process

The Event Registration Process helps student organizations plan successful, safe and organized activities. It allows students request services and create successful events.

      1. If you entered from the Organization Page, skip this step

How do I register my event?


  • Schedule a meeting with your advisor to discuss your plan. Please refer to all of the policies regarding event registration linked at the top of the page.

After meeting with your advisor:

  • Submit your registration request through the CCC. Your advisor will deny your registration request if it is not within the established time frame below.
  • Based on the nature of your event, your advisor will add the necessary reviewers from various offices at the University that you will need to support the event (e.g. Event and Classroom Management, Facilities, Public Safety). Any requests that will be asked of you will be made through the CCC. You will need to respond to these requests through the CCC.

After you have responded to all event reviewer requests, or, your submission has been reviewed by the Event Registration Review Committee:

  • Your event will be approved.

At least 2 business days before the event:

  • If having an event with alcohol, pick up SWARM t-shirts from UHS. If Public Safety Officers are assigned to your event, check in with University Public Safety to discuss details of your event.

When do I need to begin to register my event?

Student organizations must stick to strict timelines in order to ensure the success of their events.  Failure to follow event registration timelines will result in event denial by the organization's primary advisor. Please see
