On-Campus Events

The University of Texas at Arlington recommends all campus groups and organizations to limit their spring 2021 events and activities to what is required, essential and permitted by UT Arlington, county and state officials.

Virtual, online and broadcast events and meetings are strongly preferred. Large events are not permitted. No academic building classrooms will be used to host events since classes are the priority.

University officials stress that health and safety should be the key in organizing any event. Learn more about the event guidelines.

Indoor events should not exceed 25% of venue/room capacity to promote social distancing requirements. Due to venue size, reservation requests for Texas Hall, College Park Center of the Maverick Activities Center require additional approval by the appropriate vice president. Outdoor events that support the core mission of the University are permitted without capacity restrictions. Social distancing, participant registration and other safety protocols outlined in the event guidelines apply.

Events open to the general public are allowed with additional review and approval by the respective dean/vice president and venue manager.

The Event Guidelines booklet summarizes event requirements. It includes requirements for social distancing, food and beverage service, contact tracing, cleaning/sanitation and personal protective equipment. Call 817-272-5584 or email cpc@uta.eduwith questions or to schedule at Texas Hall or the College Park Center. Call 817-272-2929 or email ucrequest@uta.edu with questions about the University Center.
