Meeting/Event Reservation Resources



The Stevenson Event Center (and other venue facilities) is available to reserve for events & social gatherings starting Fall '21, on the basis that planners/organizers follow COVID mitigation best practices. Refer to UCSC Events Protocols and the CDPH Blueprint for guidelines on social gatherings (see also the UC Community Safety Plan for more guidance and guidelines).

In-person events are allowed indoors and outdoors per the California Department of Public Health, however, in-door events cannot be mandatory.

Mandatory COVID Safety Guidelines for your event:

  • See this Official UCSC Event Protocols.
  • Event Guidelines for SOMeCA/SOAR
  • Instruct campus visitors (non-faculty, staff, or student) to complete the Visitor COVID symptom check, and provide them with FAQ. This will likely be for guest facilitators or family members.
  • Event planners must provide masks for all event attendees.
  • Ensure PPE and sanitation supplies are provided (request supplies via the EH&S form).
  • Ensure ventilation and airflow via doors/windows.
  • Encourage social-distancing amongst attendees.
  • Implement a contact-tracing program via an attendee guest list or sign-in sheet at check in.
  • Follow any 'best practices' mentioned in the CDPH document.
Our college facility managers will also provide support in these areas to ensure event organizers and attendees have everything needed for a safe event.
