Holding an outdoor event on campus
Grassed Outdoor Event Bookings
Please note that, in line with Government guidance, we are unable to take bookings for grassed outdoor events until further notice.
Any societies who would like to host an event should contact the Students' Guild.
Only activity currently permitted under Government guidance will be allowed. If you are unsure on whether your type of event is permitted, please review the Government guidance.
The University of Exeter’s grounds are beautiful and can make an event truly memorable. Staff and students are able to use the grounds for a range of outdoor events. Most campus outdoor events are held on the hardstanding Forum Piazzas, which can be booked via The Forum Team.
If you would like to book an outdoor event on grassed areas, please complete the outdoor event booking form at least five working days before the event.
Photos and further details of these areas are available on our event locations page.
The Grounds Team reserves the right to review events and, due to the ongoing fluid situation, events may be cancelled at short notice.
