The Office of the Chancellor notified the UAF campus community of the newly updated Events Policy on October 13th, 2020. 

Off-campus, in-person RSO activities will be subject to an updated approval process through the SLI Office beginning Tuesday, January 19th, 2021. On-campus events or meetings are limited to those that are defined in the Events Policy 04.06.200 as "Lowest risk" and "More-risk" events. "More-risk" events or meetings held on-campus must be approved through the SLI Office and are limited to designated space within the Wood Center. Off-campus meetings that are limited to 25 attendees or fewer are now permissible. However, these meetings must remain in compliance with "More-risk" events and the responsibilities included in the Events Policy. Requests for both on-campus and off-campus events for currently active RSOs must be made using the RSO Meeting Request Form accessed hereand must include the required mitigation plan. 

The Wood Center Scheduling Office is also currently accepting requests for tabling only. More information about booth reservations can be found here.

Residence Life is now accepting requests for use of the Hess Rec for RSO activities. Requests can be made by contacting Resident Director and Student Conduct Administrator Emmett Foster at ejfoster2@alaska.edu, or by calling  (907) 455-3905. Requests must include a mitigation plan and are subject to approval.

Future updates pertaining to RSO activities during the COVID-19 pandemic can be found on this webpage. Please be advised that this information may be superseded at any time in accordance with state or local mandates, UA, and MAU updates.
