Student Events

PhoenixCONNECT is the new online platform for students to learn about the many opportunities for getting involved on campus, as well as improving communication with and among the Elon campus community. The site includes information about all recognized groups and organizations and showcases campus activities and events. Event requests must be submitted through PhoenixCONNECT two weeks prior to your event.

To submit an event request, log into PhoenixCONNECT (using your Elon username/password) and find your organization’s or department’s page. If your event is not sponsored by a student organization or university department, submit it through the ‘Elon Events’ tab on PhoenixCONNECT page.

You are also responsible for submitting information to campus resource providers, in accordance with the following timelines:

  • Event Technology requests must be submitted ten business days in advance.
  • Physical Plant requests (including room setup and layout, housekeeping, and recycling) must be submitted ten business days in advance.
  • Mill Point Catering orders must be placed seven business days in advance by calling (336) 278-5330. 
  • Campus Safety & Police requests must be submitted ten business days in advance. The Request for Police Officers Form must be uploaded to the PhoenixCONNECT Event Form, if your event includes alcohol, more than 100 guests, off-campus guests, or when money is collected at the door.

Moseley Center and Student Involvement staff will review your request upon completion of the PhoenixCONNECT Event Form. Finalized notification of your event location will be sent via email once your event has been approved.
