Planning an Event

Planning an event on campus can be complex, so the Dean's Office has created a UMass Venue Guide for a quick overview of popular spaces on campus, their capacities, and whom to contact for booking. Please also consult our more detailed Event Planning Guide that gives more information into scheduling events, planning on- and off-campus events, and travel and lodging for guests coming to campus from far away.

Departments are responsible for planning their events. Please keep in mind accessibility in the planning process. However, if you're planning a high profile event, we may be able to help. Fill out our Event Planning Request Form - tell us all the information about your event, and we will follow up with you to help plan it. 

If you have any questions, contact Emilie Ferreira.
