Events Office

The Events team produces a lively series of lectures, conferences and other activities for students, faculty, colleagues across campus and the general public. Please see the calendar for current listings, or watch past programs on YouTube.
Planning an Event

GSAPP students and faculty interested in organizing extracurricular events in Avery Hall should submit a proposal via this Online Form.

Proposals should be sent with generous time, and the Events Office will respond within one week. Events requiring support of any kind can’t be considered with less than ten days notice.

Please note the following:

  • Proposals should be sent with generous time, and the Events Office will respond within one week.
  • If an answer isn’t known or available, please enter N/A.
  • Because rooms are very limited and GSAPP’s event spaces double-function as classrooms, the School always prioritizes academic needs and GSAPP programming.
  • If an event originates externally and involves a non-GSAPP sponsor, it does require a GSAPP host because space can only be reserved if there is a direct connection to the School. In these cases, the hosting GSAPP faculty needs to attend the event in person and play an active role in presenting the event, by introducing and/or responding to the interventions of other speakers.
Promoting an Event

GSAPP Guidelines for Announcing an Event and Posting Flyers:

The perforated metal panels throughout the buildings are GSAPP’s designated bulletin boards – located in the Avery stairs, on Avery 100, and Fayerweather 200 – and can be used for event posters or other announcement flyers.

Flyers/Posters may not be taped to other walls, doors, or windows, and will be removed.

The following information needs to be included on all materials that are posted:

  • Full name of the sponsoring organization.
  • Time, date, and location of the event.

Flyers/Posters that use the Columbia University or Columbia GSAPP names must be approved by the GSAPP Communications Office in advance.

Flyers/Posters must be removed by the organizers within 24 hours of the completion of the event.

The front door of Avery Hall is only for use by the Dean’s Office / Events / Communications for School-wide activities taking place on that same day; please reach out to events@arch.columbia.edu or stop by 415 Avery in advance if you have an important activity that should be posted there.

The Avery Hall elevator box is only for use by the Dean’s Office / Events / Communications for School-wide activities taking place on that same day; please reach out to events@arch.columbia.edu or stop by 415 Avery in advance if you have an important activity that should be posted there.

The screens mounted throughout the buildings (Avery 100, 200, 400 and Fayerweather 200) can also be used for announcements. Please reach out to communications@arch.columbia.edu if you would like to include an event on the screens. The screens may not be used without prior permission.

Flyers/Posters that serve academic functions – room changes, schedule updates, review room assignments, etc. – must be approved by the Academic Affairs Office and may be temporarily posted on adjacent walls to indicate room locations.
