Event Planning

Your event, large or small, may be required by Rutgers University to hire police, security, or community service officers. Some venues at the university require separate insurance policies and parking arrangements as well.

To Plan An Event

To coordinate an event you must follow the steps outlined below:

  • 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

The following resouces will also be helpful in coordinating your event at Rutgers University:

  • 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.
