Unsure if your event is considered external? If an event is not being funded and run by either an approved student organization or department, then the event is external. In other words, if the event is not being paid for and run by a department or student organization, the event is external, even if participants or organizers are current students, faculty, or staff of the university. Pleare review Guidelines for Venue Usage for specific information.
