A. Policy Scope and Purpose


  1. Use of UCI Facilities for Major Events
    UCI makes certain facilities and spaces on campus available for Events, including Major Events (as defined below). This policy applies to Major Events sponsored by individuals other than current employees of UCI acting within the course and scope of University employment and by organizations other than Academic and Administrative Departments of UCI (“Non-University Users”).
  2. Purpose
    This policy is intended to facilitate free speech and expression and to ensure safe and successful events. It is explicitly intended to support the ability of Non-University Users to host Major Events on campus and will be applied without regard for perspectives or positions expressed in connection with those events. All criteria for assessing Major Events must be applied in a viewpoint-neutral manner and without regard to the content of any expressive aspect of the event.
  3. Scope
    This policy applies to Major Events sponsored by Non-University Users anywhere at UCI. Events scheduled, organized, and supervised by UCI Academic Departments and Administrative Departments or by student government entities are not subject to this policy. Only UCI employees acting in the course and scope of their University employment may supervise a departmental event. For purposes of this policy, departmental events include social gatherings of students from that department in departmental facilities for which no formal permission for use has been sought.
  4. Policy
    1. Non-University Users may reserve space to host Major Events with written permission from the campus and must adhere to the requirements and procedures detailed in this policy.
    2. If any Client or co-sponsor of a Major Event is a Non-University User, then this policy applies to the Major Event. This policy operates in conjunction with specific deadlines, policies and regulations for each campus facility. Facility reservation deadlines and other procedural details may vary among campus facilities. Therefore, the Venue Contact must be consulted before the event to obtain specific details concerning reservation and event procedures.
    3. The campus may classify any proposed event as a Major Event subject to this policy, consistent with the definition set forth in Part B below. Clients are encouraged to consult with the appropriate campus contact (either Student Center & Event Services Event Planner or other Venue Contact) at the earliest possible time to determine whether their event may be classified as a Major Event.
    4. Any determination by authorized campus officials that an event constitutes a Major Event under Part B.2 or B.3 will be based on the officials’ assessment of information other than the content or viewpoints anticipated to be expressed during the event. The authorized campus officials will be the Chancellor and/or the Chancellor’s designee(s). Any designee(s) must:
      1. be a Vice Chancellor or Associate Vice Chancellor, and
      2. not be a member of UCIPD.
    5. The authorized campus official(s) will make a determination in consultation with UCIPD and the Student Center & Event Services Event Planner or other Venue Contact (as appropriate). The campus will use the Campus Events Risk Grid to further determine the potential impact of an event and what permits, reviews or other requirements are necessary.
    6. Use of campus facilities by University users for events not defined as Major Events is subject to the requirements of other UCI policies.

B. Definition of A Major Event

In those circumstances, the Client may make a request for an exception to the Chancellor or the Chancellor’s designee. The Chancellor or the Chancellor’s designee will determine whether the proposed event may be held and what security or other measures shall be implemented. The determination will be based on viewpoint-neutral factors, including:

F. Security Procedures for All Major Events


  1. If required pursuant to the criteria set forth in the Campus Events Risk Grid, UCIPD will conduct a security assessment based on information provided on the Event Inquiry and Security Assessment Form and such other information as UCIPD may obtain.
    1. UCIPD will not begin conducting a security assessment unless and until the Client(s) has provided the:
      1. desired date(s)/time(s) for the event;
      2. desired location(s)/venue(s) for the event;
      3. identity of the speaker(s)/presenter(s); and
      4. expected number of participants or attendees.
    2. If any of the information in F.1.a (above) changes, UCIPD will conduct a new security assessment or revise its security assessment using the new information, which will restart the deadlines identified in Parts G and H (below).
    3. If any other information relevant to UCIPD’s security assessment changes, UCIPD may conduct a new security assessment or revise its security assessment using the new information.
  2. In consultation with the Office of Campus Counsel, UCIPD will assess security needs based on objective and credible evidence of specific risks, and not on assessment of the viewpoints, opinions or anticipated expression of event speakers, Clients, participants, attendees, community or performers. Permissible factors for consideration include but are not limited to:
    1. the estimated number of participants,
    2. the category(ies) of attendees (see UCI Campus Events Risk Grid No. 2),
    3. whether alcohol will be served at the Major Event,
    4. the time of day the Major Event is to take place,
    5. the date and day of the week of the Major Event,
    6. the proposed location of the event,
    7. the proximity of the Major Event to other activities or locations that may interfere, obstruct or lessen the effectiveness of the security measures being implemented,
    8. the resources needed to secure the Major Event,
    9. the anticipated weather conditions,
    10. the estimated duration of the Major Event, and
    11. any similar content-neutral considerations relevant to assessment of security needs.
  3. UCIPD will make security recommendations that, in UCIPD’s professional judgment, will address security threats identified as a result of the evaluation conducted pursuant to paragraph F.2. above. The goals of UCIPD’s security recommendations will be to:
    • Minimize risks to the health and safety of the event participants and attendees;
    • Minimize risks to the campus and surrounding community;
    • Maximize the ability of the Client to successfully hold the Major Event; and
    • Protect the exercise of rights of free expression by the Client, participants, attendees, and community.

    Recommended security measures may include, but are not limited to: adjusting the venue, date and/or time of the event; providing additional law enforcement; imposing controls or security checkpoints; and creating buffer zones around the venue.

  4. If UCIPD determines the Major Event has substantial security needs, the Client must schedule a security assessment meeting with UCIPD no later than five weeks prior to the Major Event date. The meeting may include, as necessary, the following: a staff member from Student Center & Event Services; the Venue Contact or designee; and one or more signatories or other representatives from the Client. The individuals serving as first contacts or signatories must attend the meeting and be available for consultation throughout the event-planning period. UCIPD will present security concerns and recommendations at the security assessment meeting, and meeting participants will discuss options for addressing the security needs that UCIPD has identified.
  5. If UCIPD determines that, because of new information it has received or changing circumstances, its security assessment must be modified, it will schedule additional meetings or communications with the Client and other appropriate stakeholders to discuss its revised recommendations.
  6. Should the Client and UCIPD be unable to agree on implementation of security measures or recommendations, the Client may submit an appeal to the Chancellor or the Chancellor’s designee for final determination. The Chancellor or Chancellor’s designee may determine the security measures required for the event based on UCIPD’s security assessment. The goals of that determination will be to:
    • Minimize any identified threat to health and safety of the event participants and audience;
    • Minimize any identified threat to the campus and surrounding community;
    • Maximize the ability of the Client to successfully hold the event; and
    • Protect the exercise of rights of free expression by the Client, participants, attendees, and community.

    Implemented security measures may include, but are not limited to: adjusting the venue, date and/or time of the event; providing additional law enforcement; imposing controls or security checkpoints; and creating buffer zones around the venue.

    Appeals must be submitted on the Appeal Form. The Chancellor or Chancellor’s designee will provide the Client a written explanation of the reasons for the final decision.

  7. If during an event an imminent threat to safety or property arises, avoidance or minimization of which requires termination of the event, authority to terminate the event rests with the senior civilian administrator designated to oversee law enforcement operations. If no senior administrator is present or available, authority is delegated to the highest-ranking UCIPD officer at the event.

G. Specific Procedures for Major Events Hosted by Students or Student Organizations
