Plan An Event

As you consider our Dover campus for your event, please consider the following planning procedures provided below.

On Campus Organization or Department

The Event Management System (EMS) that is utilized to request space on campus is currently not functioning.  In order to adequately service all reservations on campus the Campus Events Office has outlined the following steps for communicating in the system’s absence: 

New Reservations

  • Complete the Event Request Form
  • All new event requests must be submitted at least 15 business days prior to event date. 

Existing Reservations

Send an email to the Campus Events Office at campusevents [at] desu.edu with the following information included: 

  • Name of event 
  • Location of event 
  • Date & time of event 
  • Name of organization
  • Contact information for organization point of contact 
  • Set-up needs  (Room set-up and audio visual (AV) needs)
  • Expected number of guests 

We are confident that this will provide you with the information needed to reserve space on campus and host a successful event!  If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact us directly.

Off Campus Organization

Please contact the Office of Conferences and Events for space availability, pricing, and event coordinating.
