Special Events Application Information - Updated January 2023

The special event application has become one with the University Event Registration Committee (UERC) application effective January 2023.  For IU/IUPUI schools, departments, and offices, please follow the steps below to submit your event application. The application will be reviewed by multiple departments including the UERC, IUPUI campus stakeholders such as campus facility services, event services, purchasing, and campus leadership. You will receive updates via email regarding status and approval.

The event organizer will need to complete the IUPUI Special Event Application which is also known as the University Event Registration Committee (UERC) application.  

All conferences, events, and programs with 50 or more participants must submit this application for review and approval. These rules apply to all IU-sponsored conferences and events, regardless of location (both on and off campus).  Additionally, these rules apply to any external organization holding an event on IU property.
