Event Submission Form

This form is intended for any GSA Student Groups (DGAs, GSGs, or Consortium) to request event support and/or the Event Grant. (Manual form is available underneath, if needed).

NOTE: Please submit the form at least 4 weeks prior to the event date. The GSA shall follow up with the request in 2-5 business days with further instructions. Your event may require extra insurance coverage and may need approval from the University, so additional time will be needed to process requests.

Book classrooms/tables/green spaces directly through UCalgary Accommodations & Events (UCAE).


Sometimes, the GSA web site might experience unexpected problems with our embedded forms. If you are unable to submit the form above, please copy the manual form underneath to an email's body, fill out the requested information, and email the completed form to events.gsa@ucalgary.ca and governance.gsa@ucalgary.ca with the budget document attached.

I understand that (please read):
1. The Graduate Students’ Association of University of Calgary holds a Commercial General Liability policy with The Co-operators. This policy protects the organization, it’s members, and volunteers in the event of occurrences where responsibility for Bodily Injury or Property Damage is alleged.
2. In some scenarios, additional liability coverage will need to be purchased, in order to supplement the existing Commercial General Liability policy. This additional liability may be “written-in” to the base policy, or a “standalone” supplemental policy may be required. For events including the consumption of alcohol, additional license and insurance are required. Proof must be supplied to admin.gsa@ucalgary.ca prior to event approval. See DGA/GSG Handbook for more details about insurance coverage.
3. Details of event sponsor(s) and amount of sponsorship must be submitted to admin.gsa@ucalgary.ca prior to event approval.
4. To receive Event Grant, after the completion of the approved event, the After Event Report form must be filled out with all event receipts attached. If insurance is required for your event, documentation will need to be provided.

By emailing this form to the GSA, I can confirm that all information listed above is accurate and true.
