One of the first steps in becoming a leader is figuring out how to plan successful gatherings, and Event Services can help you coordinate your event. To schedule an event for your student organization or group, start following these steps, and reach out if you’re feeling stuck.
Reserve the Right Room
Browse information about our different venues, including the Paul Robeson Campus Center, 15 Washington Street, and Express Newark.
Then take the size of your group or your audio-visual requirements into account, such as a projector or a podium, and use our filtered search system to find the room that suits your needs.
Unless you’re meeting is short or everyone’s brown-bagging it, you’ll need to figure out how to feed the crowd. Rutgers University–Newark has an online catering system so you can set up in advance.
For larger events, you’ll need to consider where your guests will stay. The university is centrally located, and you can also offer housing in suites and apartments within our residence halls.

Reimbursement and Accounting
If you incur any expenses while planning your on-campus event, hang on to your receipts so you can submit them to your organization. This record-keeping will pay off in the long run.
