Event Management

  

Tons of free events and workshops are happening every day at Ryerson! Find an event on the Connect RU platform or create your own. This page will give you the resources you need to make it happen.

Use our Student Event Management (ConnectRU) process to help demystify event planning and ensure that your events are safe and successful. We work with you to gather event details, and understand and assess ways to mitigate/eliminate potential instances of risk. This process serves to protect you, as event organizers, from liability should an issue arise.

Planning an Event

Use this process if you are:

  • Organizing an event on or off campus
  • Want to book space on campus
  • Want free advertisement for your event
  • Option to track attendance (should you choose to)

We encourage you to submit your request early.  Depending on the event, the approval process can take up to 45 days.

Get Started

Step 1: Gather Event Details

  • What event are you planning?
  • Create General Details & Descriptions.
  • Identify speakers and performers (if applicable).
  • Design a graphic or media asset for the event (JPG file).

Step 2: Create or find your Organization on ConnectRU

Campus groups and clubs can submit their events through their Organizations on ConnectRU. 
 
If your group does not have an Organization yet, please follow the steps below to register an organization.

Step 3: Submit your event to Connect RU

Sign in to ConnectRU and navigate to your Organization's home page and click “Submit an Event”.
 
Reviewers will look through the details and provide recommendations or request additional information as necessary within five (5) business days of the event submission.

Step 4: Event Approval and Space Booking

You will receive an email confirmation when the event is approved. 
 
Next, your event is automatically shared with space permitters on-campus, who will book space. You will receive an email confirmation once your space is booked.
