The University of Alabama has implemented the following event registration process out of a desire to educate, assist, and support students as they plan responsible events on campus. This process includes the “Grounds Use” process, which is the designated procedure for securing space for outdoor events, programs, or advertising. The process is designed to guide student organizations toward more successful events by utilizing policy, including the Social Event Guidelines and Student Organization Handbook, and connecting with administrators through the online event registration form. In collaboration with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, the Department of Facilities and Grounds, and many other campus partners, the Office of Student Involvement administrates the event registration process.

Event Smart Training

Event Smart training is a mandatory workshop hosted by the Office of Student Involvement that educates student organization members about the online event registration form utilized to submit events for approval through mySOURCE. No student will have access to register events until they have gone through this training and received Event Smart certification for the current academic year.
