This page contains information about events on campus. Please refer to it often as information may change.

  • On-campus Spring Commencement will not be held as scheduled, and families should not plan on traveling to campus for that event. We are actively exploring and hope to provide alternative means of recognizing the significant achievements of graduates and students earning honors, but it is too early to make those plans firm.
  • Classes for children at the RISE Center and the Children’s Program will not be held from March 23 through April 3.
  • All Youth Program activities are canceled from March 13 through April 6.
  • All University Recreation facilities will close March 17 and will remain closed until further notice.
  • For prospective students: In-person campus visits will not be held from March 16 until April 5. Virtual tours, phone calls, and other alternative means will be available. The remaining Admitted Tide Days must be postponed. As circumstances allow, we will look to reschedule those and offer virtual ways to explore campus, connect with your recruiter, and assist you in fully understanding why Alabama will be your #1 choice. We will continue to hold Bama Bound New Student Orientation starting May 26th and registration remains open.
  • The SEC has canceled all remaining athletic competitions for the 2019-20 athletic year, including the Golden Flake A-Day game. For information on other athletic events, visit
  • Bryant Conference Center, Bryant Museum and the UA Gadsden Center are closed through April 6. This includes programs, events and activities within Conference Services, Corporate Engagement (Bama at Work) and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Some events may continue online via Zoom or other means.

Event Appeal Process Guidelines

Effective immediately, the UA System has canceled all non-essential University meetings, gatherings and events.

Based on the guidance provided by the UA System, an online event appeal process was developed. Prior to determining if an event should be allowed to be held the following things will be considered:

    1. Can it be postponed or canceled?
    2. Why should the event be considered essential?
    3. How big will the event be?
    4. Are visitors attending from areas of particular or elevated concern?
    5. If the event does go forward, what additional planning is needed?
    6. Has the dean of the academic unit or vice president of the division hosting the event provided approval in light of the guidance?

Once the form is completed, a committee will review applications and make recommendations to Chad Tindol, Chief Administrative Officer, who will decide if the event can be held as originally planned.

The event approval committee members are:

Janie Jenkins, Director- University Ceremonies and Events
LeNá McDonald, Project Coordinator-President’s Office
Robby Plumb, Jr., Assistant Director- Risk Management
