Special Events

The UTSA Police Department can be hired to staff university events and special programs such as concerts, speaker events, athletic events, and the like. Some campus events and venues may require our services be present. Our goal is to make every event on campus be a safe environment for all those attending. The university has started a new program to help streamline all event scheduling. Please visit www.utsa.edu/events to find the current policies and begin the process of requesting space for an event.

Do we need police or security coverage at our event?

If you are not sure if your event will need police officers or security personnel, please contact Events Management. The typical reasons an event may require police or security presence may include, but are not limited to:

  • Alcohol is being served
  • Large attendance expected
  • Concert/Live Music/DJ
  • Speakers are scheduled who have generated disturbances/protests
  • Money is being collected/tickets being sold

For more information on scheduling an event on campus, please contact the UTSA Events Management & Conference Services at (210) 458-4155 or EMCSevents@utsa.edu.
