7 Easy Steps to Event Registration

  1. Begin planning your event preferably at least three weeks in advance. Events may require more planning days depending on varying degrees of preparation required.
  2. Visit PhoenixCONNECT, at least business 21 days (3 weeks) prior to the event, to submit your event request.
  3. If your event is connected to a student organization, find their page and click on the “Events” tab under their cover photo. OR, if your event is NOT sponsored by a student organization or university department, submit it through the PhoenixCONNECT Elon Events page.
  4. The online event registration form will prompt you to complete requests for security officers or other service providers (media, moving and set ups, etc.).
  5. The Moseley Center Staff will confirm your event after all spaces have been assigned and have been approved by the appropriate offices.
  6. You will receive a confirmation email after your event has been approved. After you receive this confirmation, begin promoting your event.
  7. Follow up with service providers if needed. (Technology, Moving and Setup, Catering, Environmental Services)
