Step By Step Event Planning

Ready to Plan an Event, follow these easy steps:

Step 1: Determine your space needs and which facility would be the most appropriate for your meeting, event or conference.

Step 2: Get specific information about the room(s) that you have selected – does this space work for your event?  Check the Facility Summary.

Step 3: For Non-University Customers – Is this space within your budget?  Find out the Rates

Step 4: Have questions about what types of activities are allowed in this space?  Will there be food service, alcohol or candles?  Check the Policies to confirm that your activities are allowed!

Step 5: Is there any additional information about this space that I need to consider when planning my event? Refer to the Scheduling Processes.

Step 6: Is the time and location available for your event?  Check the JMU Calendar of Events to be sure that the space you’ve selected isn’t already reserved.

Step 7: Is it too early to schedule this space?  Check the Event Scheduling Timeline for the correct year and you’ll know for sure.

Step 8: Are you interested in services JMU can provide for your event?  Signage, Catering, Parking and Transportation to name a few!  See what we can do for you under Services.

Step 9: Are you ready to make a reservation for your event, meeting or conference?  Submit a Reservation Request online with the appropriate scheduler for the facility you’ve researched.

Step 10: Follow the directions in the confirmation email, complete any additional paperwork & diagrams. Still have questions? Don’t hesitate to contact us at 540-568-6330 or e-mail us at event-management@jmu.edu
