Event Sponsor

  • When hosting a special event on campus, non-university groups are required to have a sponsor from a UC Department, Student Organization, Faculty, Student, or Staff to hold your event inside Tangeman University Center, Stratford Heights or a centrally scheduled classroom.
  • This does not apply to events in Nippert's West Pavilion or in outdoor venues.
  • It’s easy to do; just have your university sponsor complete the form below and return to CES.
  • Use of pace requires room rental fees and CES will review options with you.

Event Insurance

  • When hosting a special event on campus, non-University groups are required to provide CES with a certificate of insurance (COI). Insurance requirements and coverage quotes are available on Enterprise Risk Management.
  • If you have questions about this process, email and we’ll be happy to advise you.
