Event Guidance and Registration

University Event Registration

Participation in live events is a central component of an Indiana University experience. Convocations, conferences, lectures, concerts, athletic events, non-credit and community programs, symposia, and performances create opportunities to share important perspectives, commemorate experiences, find commonalities with others, create meaningful networks between members of our community, and strengthen bonds with our university. Learning, connecting, and finding gratification through these experiences contribute greatly to the academic and mental health of our community.

The following event guidance is provided to inform decisions made by university departments, student organizations, individuals, and external organizations regarding conferences, events, and similar programs. 

Events with 50 or more participants must be submitted to the University Event Registration Committee (UERC) for registration and official approval. This requirement applies to all non-academic IU sponsored events, regardless of location (both on and off campus).
