Event Planning and Registration

Students registering their event on Mavorgs

New Event Registration Process for Student Organizations

Organization officers who have been granted permission to manage an organization's events by a primary contact officer or advisor will be able to access the Events Tool outlined below.

  1. Visit mavorgs.uta.edu and sign in using your UTA NetID and password.
  2. Navigate to the Events Tool within your organization and select Create Event.
  3. Once submitted your faculty/staff advisor(s) will receive a notification to review the event. (Your advisor must log in and approve your submission within 2 days.)
  4. The Student Organizations Office will review your event for final registration.
  5. Once registered, your event will now be able to be managed online to update any changes or modifications.

If your event takes place on-campus, we will forward your request to the appropriate university administrative office who will contact you concerning your space reservation. Please be patient as this will take 2-4 days following your event submission. Also note that submitting an event on MavOrgs is just the first step toward reserving your space. You’ll want to receive a reservation confirmation from the management office of the room or space you wish to use prior to moving ahead with your event plans.
