How to Post an Event?

Events that are sponsored or hosted by, or in collaboration with a campus unit, college, department, or student organization may be posted by a member of the sponsoring group. The event may be limited to only one constituency group (such as students, staff, parents, or alumni) but should generally be University-wide in scope. Listed events may be for internal or external audiences, or both. The calendar delegate for the requested calendar heading will determine if the event request meets these guidelines.

The calendar administrator reserves the right to determine if an event request meets these guidelines. A calendar administrator of an individual category reserves the right to determine if an event is appropriate for their category.

Guidelines for Posting an Event

Select which calendar is most appropriate for your event:

  • 150th Anniversary: Giant Leaps
  • Academic
  • Admission
  • Alumni, Friends & Retirees
  • Arts & Culture
  • Athletics
  • Board of Trustees
  • Career Programs
  • College & Schools
  • Conferences & Seminars
  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • Lectures and Guest Speakers
  • Libraries
  • Prospective Students
  • Recreation, Health & Fitness
  • Registrar
  • Student Life

If you are unsure where your event belongs, select “All Categories” checkbox when using the Purdue University Calendar Office [Event Submission Form].

Event postings must include:

  • title of event
  • start and end dates; start and end times
  • location
  • sponsoring department or organization
  • contact name, e-mail, campus address, and phone

Please keep in mind that adding an event to a Purdue University Calendar does not schedule the event. Events should be added to the calendar only after the proper approvals have been obtained for the space and the time. An event's presence on the calendar has no relationship to the approval process.
