Welcome to Elon University's Event Planning site. 

This site is intended to guide you through the event planning process and provide you with helpful resources. 

Event and Meeting Event Guidelines

All events sponsored by students, faculty, or staff must be registered through the Office of Campus Center Operations in the Moseley Center. When registering an event it is important to complete and submit the request/registration form no less than seven days in advance. Registration for off campus events must be submitted no less than fourteen days in advance. The Campus Center will send you an event confirmation when the event has been approved and all spaces have been assigned. Events may or may not be approved on a case by case basis.

Step 1) Reserve the Location

Use Elon's "SPACES" reservation system to select the most appropriate venue for your event. The Space, Planning And Calendar Event Scheduling (SPACES) system is a one-stop shop for requesting spaces and viewing location details.

Important Tips:

  • Please use Firefox 3.0 (or higher) or Google Chrome browsers to access SPACES.
  • Once you land on the website, click "Sign In" to begin your event registration or approval (the "Sign In" link is located in the upper right hand corner of the site). Log in using your Elon username and password.
  • For more information, see the SPACES help documentation.

Step 2) Contact Event Resource Providers
