Event Planning

Campus Support Services

Campus Safety officers have sworn to serve and protect the DU community. This department is staffed 24 hours a day. In the event of an emergency, they are responsible for sending notifications to the DU community via emergency notifications.

We recommend that you always advise Campus Safety of your event. This cooperation ensures that Campus Safety can act as a helpful and complimentary resource by being prepared to provide escorts and sending extra patrols through the area. We provide critical assistance in the event of an emergency and deter negative responses to high-profile or controversial events.

Alert Campus Safety no later than 10 business days before your event by using the Event Registration Form. If your request is received after that time, Campus Safety cannot guarantee their presence or assistance. Be sure to fill out as many fields as possible, including contact information, event information, and details regarding expected attendees and other involved campus services.

While it is always prudent to inform campus security, doing so is mandatory for certain events:

  • Events that occur late in the evening or overnight
  • Events with an expected headcount of 50 or more
  • Events where alcohol will be served

If you would like for a campus safety officer to provide extra duty at your event, please note the following:

  • Provide one-week advance notice. If shorter notice is given, we cannot guarantee coverage.
  • Extra duty can be provided with a four-hour minimum coverage.
  • Coverage cost is $60 an hour. 

If you expect 700 or more attendees, the Denver Police Department must be involved. Contact Doug Hasty for help.

ProTip: Put the phone numbers for Campus Safety in your phone for door-unlocks, escort service, or emergency assistance.

  • Non-emergency: 303-871-2334.
  • Emergency: 911 then 303-871-3000


If your event is cancelled after you’ve sent a notification to the Department of Campus Safety, make sure you notify them of the cancellation. To do so, contact:
