Healthier Argo Nation: Event Update: March 2021

The University of West Florida is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. New event guidelines are decided based on the current environment and guidance from our COVID-19 task force and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention.

As of March 9, 2021, in-person events, activities and meetings on and off campus that include more than 10 people must follow the below guidelines.

Registration and Approval:

  • Student organization events, activities and meetings with more than 10 people must be registered via ArgoPulse and approved by Student Involvement.
  • University-sponsored events, activities and meetings with more than 10 people must be approved by the appropriate Dean and Provost or Vice President.

*Please note that event requests may not be immediately approved due to campus venues making modified accommodations.

Maximum Capacities:

  • Indoor events, activities and meetings may not exceed 25 people or the COVID-19 venue capacity, whichever is fewer.
  • Outdoor events, activities and meetings may not exceed 50 people.

Health and Safety Strategies:

Additional Guidelines:

  • Events with alcohol are prohibited.
  • On-campus events, activities and meetings sponsored by non-University customers are not permitted unless approved by the President.


  • If the University determines that an event or gathering does not comply with Event and Gatherings Guidelines, the University reserves the right to:
    • Deny or rescind the event organizer’s permission to use the venue (even if the event has already started); and
    • Restrict the event organizer from reserving campus space in the future.
  • Repeat or blatant disregard for the Event and Gatherings Guidelines may result in adjudication through the conduct process.
