Are you organising a University Event?
The Events Office is part of External Affairs and holds the University's calendar of events, exhibitions and conferences. We also manage events on the home page of the University website and publish a bi-monthly events ezine.
Why should I let the Events Office know about my event?
Directing your visitors
If a visitor arrives on campus and asks where a particular event is being held, it gives a good impression if those at the public-facing parts of the University know about the event and are able to direct visitors accordingly.
Promote your event
If your event is open to the public, we can help you promote it by listing your event in various publications - the University website, our events ezine, the Alumni ezine and Voice magazine. We can also send the information to the Communications Team, who may wish to approach you about writing a press release.
Promote your visitor attraction
Does your department have something you'd like to promote to public visitors? For example, a garden, exhibition, museum, something of historical interest, a walking tour or public art? We can publicise this too.
Does your event clash with others?
By telling us about your event, we can help you by checking that your event doesn't clash with other major events around campus. Before thinking about organising an event, email the Events Office to check the diary.
Health and safety
You should tell us about your event so that so we can take appropriate action to ensure public safety in the event of something happening on campus.
We offer free advice and support
If you want some practical help on how to organise an event, we have created an Event Toolkit. You can also call the Events Office if you'd like some more specific advice.
