Before submitting your proposal, please reserve an appropriate space for your event. If you have not already done so, please visit the Find Event Space page for more information on how to reserve space. Deadlines and policies vary by facility. The Campus Event Services staff can assist you with navigating the reservation process and connect you with event space managers on campus.
