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

  • All new event requests must be submitted at least 15 business days prior to event date. 
  • Submit your event request Hornet Events Booking System.

Existing Reservations

To follow up on or make an inquiry on requesting revisions to an existing event request please email campusevents [at] desu.edu.

Off Campus Organization

Off-Campus Organizations – please contact the Office of Campus Events for space availability, pricing, and event coordination at campusevents [at] desu.edu.
