Adding an Event to the Calendar

About VCU Events Calendar:

Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) sponsors thousands of events each year.  The VCU Events Calendar allows you to schedule and publicize pre-approved, University-sponsored events.  Specifically, the calendar is designed for non-course related events sponsored by a University department or registered student organization. 

Please note:  the Events Calendar is not a mechanism for scheduling facilities.
