Event Planning Resources

The CU Anschutz Event Services Program is a resource to the campus community to navigate the complexities of planning events on campus. We provide consultation services and guidance on adhering to campus policy, submitting space reservations, securing campus services and more. 

These recommended checklists are inclusive of tasks large and small so planners can consider the components of their event and if the following steps are applicable. Select the event checklist that applies best to your event type.

  • Complex Event Checklist - Select this checklist if your event is outdoors, multi-day, includes multiple spaces, includes registration or is high profile.
  • Standard Event Checklist - Select this checklist for events that are more straightforward (single day, single venue)
  • Meeting Checklist - If you are conducting a meeting or gathering on campus, this list is for you.
  • Student Events - Student events are conducted according to the above checklists. Requests for funding for your event can be directed to Student Senate.

Need to talk to a real person about your event? Do you have a big idea and don't know where to start? 

Schedule a time with our Event Services Team to review the details of your gathering and come away with recommendations for your next steps. Questions and requests for venue walkthroughs can also be directed to events@cuanschutz.edu.

Schedule a consultation.

Do you regularly organize meetings and events on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus or at off-campus venues?

The Campus Event Organizers Group is for anyone who has that responsibility, regardless of whether it is included in your official job title or duties. The group meets regularly to share information and assist one another, and uses Teams to maintain a library of information designed to help everyone produce the most successful events possible. Regular trainings are also provided on policy and EMS so organizers can stay up to date on current guidance and technology.
