Plan an Event

To assist the campus community with planning events, we have created these resources as a one-stop-shop to guide you in your event planning journey.  This resource provides information on policies and procedures, best practices for event planning, requesting space on campus, potential expenses, as well as event planning deadlines. This site will guide you through the event planning process from idea generation to evaluating your event. 

This process is designed for recognized student organizations (RSOs) or FSU departments.  If you are an external client looking to host your event on the Frostburg State University campus, please contact the Office of Conferences & Events at

These resources were also designed to serve as an aid to all of the individuals "behind the scenes" who are an essential part of ensuring your events run smoothly.  By following the processes outlined on this website, we will be able to assist you in the planning process to ensure you have a phenomenal event. 

From reserving a room for a small meeting to planning an event for hundreds of people with catering, extra security, additional housekeeping staff, and advanced lighting/sound, this website will aid you through the entire process.  Please review the policies, procedures, and guidelines as well as utilize the event planning checklist to ensure all your needs are taken care of for your next event.

Did you know? As a member of the Frostburg State University community, the Lane University Center’s meeting facilities are available for your department or student organization’s use at NO CHARGE. This includes basic setup of the event space with tables and chairs (theater style seating, banquet tables, classroom style, etc.) INCLUDING laptop/LCD projector use, and basic house sound systems in some spaces. 

The first step in your event planning journey is to request space on campus for your event.  To browse for space or to request space, use the EMS Web App
