Do I need to submit a Special Event Registry form for my event?

The ASU Safety Teams strongly encourage event producers to submit an Special Event Registry form for all special events on ASU properties.


Because your event may impact – or be impacted by – other events happening on campus. The Safety Teams will review your information and contact you if they see an issue.

  • The event is open to the general public.
  • The event will be outdoors, in a lab space, or an area that is not designed or intended for the function.
  • Food will be served.
  • Alcohol will be served.
  • Media will be present.
  • Event set-up includes:
    • Tents
    • Canopies
    • Stages
    • Platforms
    • Inflatables
    • Carnival Rides

  • The event includes safety concerns, such as:
    • Hazardous Materials
    • Fireworks/Pyrotechnics
    • Electrical Generators
    • Cooking (including Food Trucks)
    • Other safety concerns
  • The event programming includes controversial topics (media might cover it, protesters might attend, security may be needed)

We like to say:
