Plan an Event

Your creativity plays a central role in making the Graduate School an inviting place to live and study. Below, you’ll find everything you need to plan and host a Graduate School event. For additional guidance, visit the University’s Event Planning Toolkit.

Step 1: Review the Events Planning Handbook

Registered Graduate Student Organizations: The Student Organization Handbook is your first stop for all things event planning. Topics covered include: 

  • Planning an event
  • Registering an event
  • Running an event
  • Publicizing an event
  • Alcoholic Beverage Policy
  • Noise Policy
  • Fundraising guidelines

Step 2: Set up Your Account / Organization in MyPrincetonU

Step 3: Create Your Event

Fund Your Event

  • Graduate Student Government: The GSG offers funding for graduate student events through the GSG Events Board. The GSG, the Graduate School, the Office of the Vice President for Campus Life, and the Davis International Center fund the Board.
  • Graduate College House Committee: If you are a graduate student organization and would like to hold an event at the Graduate College you can apply for up to $500 in funding for a single event. To apply, please send an email to [email protected] with a description of your event and a preliminary budget, specifying what components the GCHC would be contributing. 
  • Other Options: Depending on the type of event, you may want to reach out to specific departments or centers on campus to co-sponsor the event.
