Students planning any event, indoors or outdoors, anyplace on or off-campus should first go to the Division of Student Affairs, “Matador Involvement Center” located in the University Student Union (USU) for information.
Special event insurance is usually required if the participants include anyone who is not a registered student or a member of CSUN faculty or staff. Fundraising events require coordination with University Advancement.

On-campus events organized by CSUN faculty or staff, faculty groups, college or department with outside organization involvement, or events organized by outside groups without CSUN sponsorship must go to University Licensing, Sierra Center, 3rd floor to start.
