Spring 2021 Event Recommendations

Following the state’s guidance on indoor and outdoor event capacities, UNC will not adopt capacity policies that are more restrictive than state requirements. The main focus will be on events hosted by departments and student groups; however, if space is available, community event customers can utilize UNC's venues while following the same restrictions as events hosted by departments and student groups.

Learn more about Event Services COVID-19 Policies

For spring events at UNC, the below policies will be followed:

  • Food is not allowed at indoor events.You aren't allowed to bring in your own food or have catering at any indoor events. Food at events can create an environment where event participants remove their masks to eat and, thus, forces the event to comply with more restrictive restaurant regulations under the State of Colorado's COVID-19 Dial system instead of indoor-events guidelines. Recommended Solution: A 'parting gift,' such as individually boxed cupcakes, can be distributed at the end of an event as people are leaving the event.
  • Spaces currently configured as classrooms, such as the University Center ballrooms, are available for events if the classroom setup is usable for the event without modifications. Seated events that use these setups will not require a COVID application process or checklist and can be approved immediately.
  • For events that require a 'custom' setup, other spaces will be utilized including Campus Commons, Gunter Gym, Campus Rec Center, etc. These events require going through the COVID-checklist process found on the UNC's Conference Event Services website.
  • Outdoor events may allow food as long as it follows certain protocols. Please contact your event coordinator for further details. No catering or concessions are allowed, and events with food will require extra spacing.
