There are tons of events and workshops happening every day at Ryerson! Virtually all of them are free so you really don't have much of an excuse to get bored on campus. But, if none of the events are to your liking, you can always create your own. This page will give you the resources you need to make it happen:

Poster Procedure

Poster Approval Procedure

An essential part of event planning is effective promotion and marketing. Ryerson has several posting boards available on-campus for student, staff, and faculty to post information about upcoming events, available services, research studies, etc. These boards are maintained by Campus Planning & Facilities and require that posters have a stamp from Student Services to remain posted. Any posters not bearing the stamp will be removed.

To receive a stamp you must fulfill the following requirements:

  1. Posters must be sponsored by a Ryerson acknowledged student group, or a Ryerson department.
  2. The content of the poster must adhere to the Ryerson Non-Academic Code of Conduct.
  3. Posters must include a 1.5" x 3" blank, white space for the stamp to be applied.
  4. ONE COPY will be stamped that subsequent copies can be made from.
  5. Posters advertising a student group event must have an accompanying risk assessment form in order to receive approval.

All posters should be submitted to the Student Information Desk in POD 61 for review. Posters will be reviewed and approved daily at 4:30 pm. Posters received after 4:30 pm will not be reviewed until the following day.

If you have any questions, please contact the Student Information Desk at or at 416-979-5000 x5187.

Event Management

Student Event Management

Hundreds of events are planned each year by the dedicated student leaders. Ryerson strives to support them by providing feedback and advice during the event planning process. We have designed the Student Event Management process to help demystify event planning and ensure that student events are safe and successful.

If you are planning a Ryerson event you should fill out our online form. You will be asked a number of questions about your event in the form. If you are more specific in the details you relate about your event, it will significantly reduce the amount of time required to review your proposal since we may not need to follow up with you for more details. The information submitted will be used by the reviewer(s) to understand the nature and structure of your event. Any information about content (names of speakers, topics to be covered, names of films being screened, types of games, etc.) and logistics (agendas, organizing structures, registration locations, etc.) will speed the process up.

We will provide feedback and suggestions based on the information you provide.

If you are a student who is planning a Ryerson event, please fill out the online form at the following link to initiate the event management process:

Use the online Student Event Management form to help you identify and prepare for:

  • Food safety
  • Public safety
  • Fire/gas safety
  • Accessibility
  • Transportation safety
  • Building/structural/site safety
  • Positive community relations


Staff from all departments affiliated with the event management process will review the form and help to make your event the safest it can be. Here is the process:

  1. Book your on-campus space.
  2. Fill out the online Event Management Form AT LEAST 7 DAYS IN ADVANCE of your event date
  3. Log in and respond to the comments of any reviewers and check the status of your event.
  4. Once your event is approved by all departments, you can proceed with the event.
