General Registered Student Organizations (GRSOs) are independent third parties, with no legal affiliation to the University and any of its entities. As such, neither its statements, its ideas, nor its activities are endorsed by the University of Florida. GRSOs are encouraged to apply for services with Student Legal Services (SLS) for legal advice as it pertains to their contracts. If SLS cannot assist, they will refer the GRSO to local private counsel.
The University of Florida will not enter into contracts on behalf of a General Registered Student Organization. GRSOs do not have authority to enter into a contract on behalf of the University of Florida. The University of Florida is not responsible for any services, equipment, rentals, performers, goods, or other items purchased by GRSOs. Any property or goods purchased are solely owned and maintained by GRSOs not the University of Florida. General Registered Student Organizations shall not use the University of Florida’s tax identification number at any time.

If you are approached about a “co-sponsorship” by non-university groups or commercial vendors, please contact Student Engagement’s Office of Event Services to have the inquiry reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Do not reserve meeting rooms for these vendors. Your organization must be the main sponsor and the headliner on all promotional materials (i.e. the Reitz Programming Board presents…). Promotional materials may be reviewed by Student Engagement’s Office of Event Services.
Submitting an Event Permit
Permits need to be submitted AT LEAST 3 weeks (15 business days) in advance. Note that only officers of an organization listed in GatorConnect will be able to submit a permit.
After a permit is approved, an automated email will be sent to the officer who submitted the permit. As a reminder, a permit request does not reserve any space for an event – you will need to go through the office that manages the space.
For any questions regarding event permits please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Approved Fundraising Activities on Campus
Fundraising Activities not Allowed on Campus
The use of animals for research, teaching, or exhibition is closely regulated by the federal government. High standards exist for the care and use of animals at UF. To ensure compliance with all regulations, policies and standards in place to protect animal welfare, Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) members review all requests for approval to use vertebrate animals. Failure by any individual to adhere to these standards can jeopardize the University of Florida’s entire animal use program.
Organizations are responsible for all University Police (UPD) and other related expenses (approximately $365 for UPD).
Requests for tabling reservations can be be made through Student Engagement’s Office of Event Services.
