Welcome to Cornell University's Event Registration form

Cornell University's Event Registration form is a tool used to help event planners connect with university officials in order to make their event planning experience efficient and painless. The communication between the event planner and university official will help the event planner better understand university policies and procedures, while allowing the university official the opportunity to learn more about the event and sponsoring organization(s). Though the process may seem tedious at times, it is important to maintain an open line of communications, and be prompt and courteous.
