Ready to run an event? You've come to the right place. Find everything below you need to know and what to submit to make your event a success!

In 2017 DUSA Clubs & Societies across Deakin hosted over 1800 events! To help support our club executives to continue to grow the number and scope of events in 2018, the information below has been created to help you understand what is required to make sure your event is approved by DUSA and is safe and fun for all.

To have you event approved by your Club Support Coordinator you are required to submit an Event Request Package incorporating an Event Request Form, a Deakin Risk and Control Assessment, and a Budget Form. In addition to this, those events that are deemed to be High Risk will also be required to submit a DUSA Risk Assessment, relevant to the type of event. The table below will give you an idea of what is required depending on your event type:

Event Management Documents

Financial Management Forms

Risk Assessment Forms

If you require any clairification when completing your Event Request Package then please contact your Club Support Coordinator.

Happy event planning!
