About this site

The KU Event Calendar is the university's central source for event information. It offers a comprehensive listing of campus events, including lectures, conferences, performing arts, exhibitions, activities and more. You can browse events by date, category or organization, and you can forward events or import them to your personal calendar.

Policies and Procedures

How do I submit an event?

A campus organization may have one or more designated calendar administrators, who can login to the calendar admin system via KUID. Once logged in, the calendar administrator can add new events or edit previously submitted events.

If you represent a KU academic department, organization, or student group which does not have a calendar administrator, you may Request an account.

What events can be posted?

Approved events that are open to the KU community or open to the public can be advertised on the KU Event Calendar if they meet the following requirements:

  • the event is sponsored by your registered organization;
  • the event venue has been reserved for the proposed date and time;
  • required approvals are on file (e.g., contracts with speakers or vendors);

Outside companies or organizations do not qualify as KU sponsors and may not post events.

When will events be posted?

Published events will generally be posted within 8 hours of submission. The calendar editor reviews newly published events regularly. If an event does not appear to meet the requirements, it will be removed from the system. Publication of events is at the discretion of the calendar editor.

How do I change event information on the calendar?

As a calendar administrator you can edit previously entered events, but you must contact kucalendar@ku.edu to have them cancelled. A change of venue, date/time or scope must be approved by the space-granting entity. If a publicized event has been canceled, we strongly recommend that you mark the event as such under the "Publish" tab of the event editing screen rather than having it cancelled.

How do I add a photo or image to an event listing?

Images should be resized to 350 x 350 pixels. In the "Detail Image" box, paste the CMS hosted location of the photo you want to use.
