University Center Activities & Events (ucae)

Student Events

Student events are one of the hallmarks of Duke’s extracurricular life on campus. Student organizations contribute to the vibrant social life at Duke by hosting a variety of events on campus for the Duke and Durham communities. If you are a student organization and would like help planning your next event please visit our Event Services website

When planning a student event it is important to plan ahead. Six questions every student organization should ask before beginning the process of planning an event: Who, What, Where, Why, How and When? Nail these and you are on your way to hosting a successful event!

To learn more about planning your own student event on campus please visit to get started. Students are also encouraged to visit the University Center Activities & Events (UCAE) office in the Bryan Center for assistance in planning their event. Professional staff support is available to guide student organizations through the event planning process.
