Events and activities can be scheduled through our online permit application. A permit enables you to reserve access to specific locations and amenities for specific times. For more information, please contact Events Coordinator at (360) 902-8881 or email@example.com.
So that we can better help you, please give some thought to your objectives and to what types of activities might best achieve them.
A permit is not required for free speech activities involving fewer than 25 people inside the buildings or involving fewer than 75 people on the grounds. However, you may still want to obtain a permit so that you can reserve a specific date, time, or location.
DES Visitor Services can suggest creative strategies to achieve your objectives.
Give us as much detail as you can about your plans so that we can help you prepare for a successful event. For example:
DES offers event support services, such as equipment setup or custodial, for a charge. To manage our services effectively, we ask that you submit your request for our services at least five full working days prior to your activity. See our guidance on scheduling support services for more information.
We will issue your permit or deny your application within two full working days of receiving your completed application form.
If your activity requires an application charge or if you have scheduled our services, we must receive your deposit before we issue your permit. See our Campus Use Rate Schedule for information on our services and related charges.
Please review your permit carefully. Your permit will describe the details of when, where, and how your activity can proceed. If we deny your application, you can appeal to the director of DES within five working days of the date of the denial.
Before the start of your activity, check in with DES Visitor Services. We can help make sure all scheduled DES services are on track.
All activities must comply with our general use requirements and terms of the permit.
Permitted activities may be held in the following locations
Other campus buildings are designed for office use and do not have designated event spaces for permitted activities. If you have a special request, or need guidance or ideas on where you can hold an activity, please call (360) 902-8881.
