Event Registration and What to Expect

As a state institution of higher education, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) is dedicated to utilizing its resources, including its facilities and property, consistently, efficiently, and effectively to carry out UAB’s mission and goals in education, research, and public service.  

UAB policy requires an event to have prior written approval of a location reservation by the Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration or his/her designee.

Events are planned gatherings including, but not limited to, celebrations, dances, lectures, performances, rallies, concerts, speaker presentations, conferences, fundraisers, races, festivals, and parades.  

With the exception of spontaneous expressive activity, all events on and off campus require approval and must be requested at least thirty (30) days prior to the event. Student events must be registered via Engage at least 15 days prior to the event.

All events involving an external organization must have a UAB-sponsoring internal organization, which serves as the primary point contact for the external organization.

Event Registration and COVID-19 Requirements

All events must comply with UAB's COVID-19 Guidelines and with the supplemental requirements in the Event COVID-19 Health and Safety Requirements.

Any event over 250 attendees will require approval by the appropriate Senior Vice President or Vice President.
