UCL Events


Public events calendar policy

This policy is designed to provide UCL staff with clear guidelines as to the suitability of events for the UCL public events calendar (www.ucl.ac.uk/events

Terms of reference and criteria for inclusion:

The online calendar is for the promotion of UCL events which are aimed at a public audience. Events which are aimed at students/staff only or a specialist audience are not suitable for publication on the events calendar and organisers should use alternative routes to publicise these events.

Events must have a confirmed date and time, venue, title, synopsis (guideline 250 words), speaker (if appropriate), image (800 x 500 pixels preferably - or 16:10 ratio) and booking contact details.

UCL events

UCL events are events which are organised by a UCL department and take place on the UCL campus. 

Events which are organised by UCL with UCL speakers but take place at non-UCL venues may also be considered for inclusion.

Events do not include courses or departmental open days (the general undergraduate open day will be included). 

Public audience

The events should be aimed at (as opposed to open to) a public audience and accessible to an intelligent lay audience who do not need to have prior experience or knowledge of the subject.

If you are unsure whether your event fits these criteria, please contact events@ucl.ac.uk
