Event & Moving Services provides support to events of all sizes, whether a small retirement ceremony, or something much larger like Explore UT, commencement, or convocation ceremonies. Event support is provided by a collaborative team, including EMS, the Facilities Service Center, Custodial Services, and Solid Waste & Recycling from Facilities Services, and the Carpentry and Electrical shops from Project Management & Construction Services.
The following are the services and inventory available for your special event on a first-come, first-served basis:
