Events and Activities 

As we return to campus this summer, many stakeholders will request permission to hold events and activities on campus. In light of new state requirements regarding public events, as well as the availability of vaccines and our return-to-campus planning, the University has created a new approval process for such requests. 


Under the new policy, which remains in effect until Aug. 31, 2021, all New Brunswick events and activities must be approved by the Chancellor’s Office before the event organizer may submit them via the Event and Activity Certification System. Event requests may be submitted to the Chancellor’s Office using the form found in this link.


All requestors will, within 48 hours, receive an emailed response indicating approval or a request for further information. Upon receiving an approval letter from the Chancellor’s Office, the requestor must use the Event and Activity Certification System to submit their event or activity for certification. Any questions about this process can be directed to Executive Vice Chancellor Felicia McGinty at
