Things that the IEM can help you with include:

  • Working closely with the Internal Communications Officer to Publicise University events through the Online Events Calendar, Student and Staff news and external channels when necessary.
  • Ensuring the correct processes are followed when VIP’s are on Campus.
  • Working closely with the Universities central and school Marketing teams to ensure an integrated and coordinated approach to event promotion

Important information for ALL staff organising an event on campus

The first thing you must do before publicising any event is to confirm your booking of the spaces you need for the event.

All events must be logged in the Campus Events Diary on SharePoint and information kept up to date as the planning process continues. This can be found here;

All external speakers to the University must be logged via the External Speaker log by the organiser of the event (this is a requirement placed on us by external regulation). This should be done no less than 2 weeks prior to the event. This can be accessed via the events diary on SharePoint or directly here;



Each school has a timetabling department available to assist you with your room bookings
