Master Events Calendar

The Master Events Calendar, managed by the Office of Campus Events exists to reduce or prevent scheduling conflicts between events that target similar audiences and/or require similar resources.

Department-, office-, and affiliate-sponsored events, and large-scale meetings (e.g., town halls, faculty meetings, etc.) should be added to the Master Events Calendar in a timely manner via the Event Submission Form. Changes or cancellations can be submitted to

Scheduling conflicts?

Please consult the Master Events Calendar and EMS for potential conflicts before planning your event, particularly if you are contracting with external visitors. Event scheduling is generally on a first-come, first-served basis; however, traditional annual events, such as Opening Convocation, Founders’ Day, Honors Day, Baccalaureate, Commencement, Reunion Weekend, and the MLK Day of Dialogue, are permanent fixtures on the calendar and should not be scheduled against. 

The Master Events Calendar is not intended to replace EMS. Please continue to reserve rooms, through the system.
