University Events

Each year, thousands of events take place at Cornell University.

Cornell's beautiful campus and buildings form a memorable backdrop for any kind of special event. To preserve the beauty and historic nature of these buildings and areas, and to ensure the safety of all participants, Cornell University has established a set of requirements governing the registration process & procedures, as well as the appropriate use of these spaces during your event. These policies and procedures must be followed to ensure that the event is safe and in compliance with university policy. During certain times of the year, Cornell has additional requirements or limitations on usage. The University Events Team (UET) is a group of university officials available to assist with policy-related questions and give advice on best practices.

Each year, there are many university-wide events taking place to help bring the campus and local communities together while fostering relationships and creating memorable experiences. Examples of university-wide events include the following:

  • Slope Day
  • Homecoming
  • Orientation
  • Commencement/Convocation
  • Reunion Weekend
  • Family Weekend
