Starting in 2018, our new Campus Calendar will be the central website for discovering what to do and where to go at UAB. Whether you're out and about or at your desk, you're only a click away from knowing what is happening around campus.

There is so much happening at UAB, but there has never been one place to discover it all. We're set to change that.

We are launching the new UAB Campus Calendar in hopes of not only showcasing the great events going on, but also making it easy to share what is happening with the UAB community. Whether you're a student looking to get involved, a sports fan ready to cheer on the Blazers or an employee wanting to get the word out about your event, we've got you covered.

We hope you're as excited about this as we are. Let's get involved.

Location-Based

You can easily check to see all of the upcoming events for a particular location, whether it's a stadium or academic building. "Follow" the place and never miss another event. Each event on the UAB Campus Calendar site has an embedded Google Map to give you access to directions. 

Powerful Search

Users are able to use the powerful search box to search for events, places, people, and departments/groups. The UAB Campus Calendar uses filters and tags to help users find exactly what events they are interested in. 

Calendar Widgets

Put your department or group calendar on whatever website you want. The UAB Campus Calendar uses a simple widget builder to customize the type and style you want, and allows you to copy/paste a script. Put the feed onto your Joomla website.

Guidelines 

The UAB campus calendar is for events organized, hosted, sponsored or cosponsored by UAB units, departments, colleges, schools, centers and institutes, alumni organizations, and official registered student organizations. Events hosted exclusively by local or regional non-university businesses or organizations would be better suited to be posted on the Birmingham 365 calendar, maintained by the Birmingham Convention & Visitors Bureau

How to Submit Your Event?

Events can be submitted to the calendar using the online submission form. Enter as much information as you can and click 'Submit an Event'. You can always make changes to any events you add. Event Name, description, and date are required, however, the more information you enter, the better your event landing page will be. After you submit your event, it will be reviewed by UAB University Relations; you will recieve an email when your event has been approved and added to the calendar.

To ensure maximum exposure for event listings, please submit the listing at least two weeks ahead of the event date. This allows time for review and posting.
