Events Hub

Te Kāinga Kaupapa


The role of the Events Hub is to provide a single university-wide event management service.

We provide a range of services throughout the event process, from initial conceptualisation and feasibility through to on-the-day support and post-event evaluation.

Please note that external events are not managed by the Events team.

  • Event planning, budgeting, and stakeholder engagement
  • Logistics such as travel, venue and catering, equipment and entertainment, invitations and registrations, and collaboration with Marketing and Communications teams
  • Running of the event from set-up to troubleshooting and pack-down
  • Evaluation, debrief, and recommendations for future events

Small event support includes:

  • Providing advice and guidance
  • Access to a range of templates and tools

External Events

The Events Hub’s primary focus is on University-owned events. The Events Hub does not provide services for external events held on-campus. A toolkit has been designed to assist you to plan your event at the Dunedin campus.
