University Events Updates

Seton Hall works to update our event planing and policies in accordance with state guidelines. The following information will be updated as new information becomes available.

Events Protocol

Ways to hold approved and finalized events to the campus community: 

All events must be submitted to our University Calendar. Event content is pulled from the University Calendar for various communications, so it is essential to put all your events on the University Calendar. We encourage student groups to do the same. Events submitted to the University Calendar will be promoted in scheduled weekly sends. 

Reserving a Room:
