Event Approval Request Form

Student leaders must complete an Event Approval Request Form for Risk Management whenever the activity meets any of the conditions above, or when in doubt:

  • Includes anything that has inherent risk to the university or its students, faculty, staff, or the general public

  • Requires fire and life safety permitting

  • Requires dining services or catering approval

  • Involves contracts or agreements that require the university to indemnity other parties

  • Requires regulatory or code compliance; examples: fire dancers, fireworks, open flames, vehicle displays, catering, food trucks, animals on campus, tents, crowds of significant size, drone flights

Find more information on guidelines for events at https://risk.byu.edu/events-frequently-asked-questions. Note that activities with minors (participants under the age of 18) must be approved. Risk Management usually requires a minimum of two weeks for this approval, although they may be able to reply sooner.
