To Plan an Event
  • Contact the venue site coordinator for event organization.
  • Contact the Community Policing Officer (CPO) designated to your campus at least two weeks prior to your event.

Your campus-based officer can provide guidance regarding safety
and security requirements for social and athletic events, parades, and rallies. They will be able to assess your needs and provide information on overtime rates for police department personnel.

Parking & Transportation Services
  • A contact person for the planned event is also required to work with the Special Events Coordinator at the Rutgers Department of Transportation Services (DOTS) to obtain parking and transportation services and distribute permits to event attendees. There are costs associated with providing event signage, parking personnel, and transportation.
  • For more information on obtaining parking and transportation services for your event, please contact RU DOTS.
