Hosting an Event

AOD is not accepting event requests at this time. Events with alcohol are strongly discouraged during the COVID-19 pandemic, as alcohol-related events can increase the risk of engaging in unsafe behaviors that can lead to COVID-19 spread. These events not only go against Penn’s strict public health guidance, but they are in violation of the Student Campus Compact.

If you are a student group hoping to host an event, please visit the Office of Student Affairs website to submit your request.

Students hosting unregistered events will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct. Please refer to the CDC guidelines on social distancing when making personal plans, and consult the Student FAQ frequently for updates:
