Holding an outdoor event on campus

Freshers' Week 2019

Please note that we can no longer accept requests for events on outdoor grassed areas during Freshers' Week; the deadline was Friday 5th July.

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.
