Through the Event Resource Request process, University Programs provides UA student organizations and departments with funding, promotion, and videography/photography for certain on campus events. Learn more on University Programs’ website.
Food at events should be pre-packaged or provided by an approved caterer.
Any organization hosting an event where food is present and there is any exchange of money at all for an event, including the sale of an entrance ticket or wristband (i.e., an event where tickets are sold in exchange for entrance and food), even if not stated specifically for food, the applicant must submit an exemption application to the Environmental Health and Safety at least one week (5 business days) in advance.
Once this form is received EHS will forward to the Tuscaloosa County Health Department. Please note that a separate exemption request must be completed for each event. In addition, if food is provided for an event where attendance includes anyone other than University of Alabama students and staff, the chapter must submit an Exemption application. This would include meetings, programs, or events where alumnae/alumni are present, as well as any non-UA affiliated attendees and will include Game Day Tailgates this Fall. The organization must submit an Exemption application for these events as well to EHS at least one week (5 business days) in advance.
