Events & Event Planning

The University of New Mexico will consider events on campus that follow UNM’s Bringing Back the Pack Guidelines, the State of New Mexico's Red to Green Framework, and the NMDOH COVID Safe Practices Document.  Not all venues on campus are open and allowing bookings at this time, so please confirm your venue booking before submitting the Bring Back the Pack event request form.  Your event is subject to the State of New Mexico Red to Green Framework guidelines in effect at the time of your event, not at the time of your booking and Bringing Back the Pack event request form approval.  For example, if Bernalillo County moves from turquoise to yellow at the time of your event, the level yellow restrictions must be followed.

UNM COVID-Safe Event Protocols: At all indoor UNM events, attendees must wear masks throughout the event unless actively drinking or eating, in accordance with the New Mexico Public Health order. At UNM events where attendees include individuals who are not UNM faculty, staff, or students, event organizers may choose to require those in attendance to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test dated within the last 72 hours. Such proof may be actual cards or documents or photographs on a mobile device. Individuals who are assigned the responsibility for checking vaccination status may find it helpful to review the vaccination verification training.

Event Request System

All event requests must be submitted, reviewed, and approved prior to their occurrence on campus. Visit the Bringing Back the Pack event request webpage for more information and to submit your request.
