Who can submit an event?
Any individual or organization with a UMass Amherst NetID may submit an event.
A one-time registration is required at the “Register to Submit Events” link. After that, simply login with your NetID to submit or manage your events.
If you do not have a UMass Amherst NetID, please send details of your event to web firstname.lastname@example.org.
What events can be submitted?
Any event that takes place on the UMass Amherst campus and is open to the entire campus community may be submitted. An off-campus event that is sponsored by a UMass department or program may also be submitted.
How do I submit an event?
After logging in at umass.edu/events, click “Submit an Event.” The form will guide you through the required and optional fields.
We encourage you to provide as complete an event description as possible for your event and to add photos or other images using the image fields. A complete description and photos help to promote your event.
You are responsible for the accuracy of your listing, so make sure you have dates, times, locations and other details listed correctly, and that the spelling and punctuation is accurate.
What happens next?
Your submitted event will be reviewed and published by University Relations within three business days. In rare cases, events may be edited by University Relations to fix obvious errors in punctuation, spelling or formatting. Most events are not edited and are published just as they are submitted.
In some cases, a submitted event is not published. This is usually because:
1) the event was previously submitted to the calendar by you or by someone else
2) the event is off-campus and is not obviously sponsored by a UMass department.
If you do not see your submitted event in the calendar within three business days of its submission, you may contact us at email@example.com to find out why.
How do I change or delete my event?
You can make changes to your event at any time after it has been submitted. To change your event, login to the events calendar, select the "My Events" option in the page sidebar, select the event to edit, select the "Edit Draft" tab, make changes, and select "Save." Changes will be reviewed and if approved will appear within three business days.
Please remember that you are responsible for the accuracy of your event listing. If an event sells out, for example, it is your responsibility to edit your event with this information.
To delete your event, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can my event be featured on the UMass Amherst home page or promoted in official UMass Amherst social media feeds?
Select events are chosen to be featured on the UMass Amherst homepage or promoted through official campus social media. University Relations chooses which events to promote based on criteria including: the potential size and scope of the audience for an event, the thoroughness of the event description, the presence of images with the event, and campus priorities. If you would like to request that your event be featured, please send an email to email@example.com.
