University Events Team (UET)
The University Events Team (UET), formerly Events Management Planning Team (EMPT), is a group that can assist you with the planning of your events. UET is made up of representatives from various offices throughout the university including Conference & Event Services, Campus Activities, Cornell Police, Environmental Health & Safety, Risk Management & Insurance, Parking and Transportation Services, and University Relations.
UET meets on Thursdays at 3:00 pm (as needed) in the CU Police Department Conference Room in Barton Hall. These meetings allow event planners the opportunity to consult directly with university officials about their events, and often result in obtaining approvals for their Event Registration Form(s).
Note: UET members meet on an as-needed basis throughout the year with students, faculty, and staff who are planning events. Email UET or call (607) 255-2070 for more information regarding the UET meeting schedule, or to be placed on the agenda for an upcoming meeting.
Planning Ahead is Essential
Completing the Event Request Process early - four (4) weeks before the event for some events and two (2) in advance for others. This allows event-planning experts to better understand the event and better communicate with you. You may be required to meet with the UET and/or its members like Cornell Police, Cornell Dining, Environmental Health & Safety, or others who will assist with the event planning and assess where your event fits into the table below.
Events at Fraternity/Sorority Houses
If your event takes place in a fraternity or sorority house (either private or university-owned), you should not complete an Event Request Form. However, please be sure to register your event with Sorority and Fraternity Life (607) 255-2310.
Changes to your event details
If any details of your event are changed after you have already submitted the form, you will need to speak with the Event Final Approver. Please contact the Event Final Approver at the Conference and Event Services Office, 206 Robert Purcell, 607-253-8368, or email@example.com.
