Guidance on Student Gatherings & Events

Updated June 1, 2021

Please visit Reed’s COVID-19 Prevention & Response website for comprehensive guidance on holding in-person gatherings and events.  


Reserving Event Spaces and Tabling Times

Students may book an event space or reserve a table through the IRIS student event registration portal. Instructions are available here.

We also encourage students to register virtual events on IRIS so that they can be advertised through the weekly Events and Programs Newsletter and on 

Rollback of events

The COVID-19 Risk Assessment Group continues to assess the current health risks to the on-campus community and will make suggested operational adjustments as needed. 

Public Health Guidance During In-Person Gatherings & Events

In all cases, in-person event organizers and all attendees must follow individual public health guidance issued by Reed and comply with federal, state, and local COVID-19 public health protocols. 

The event organizer is responsible for communicating this guidance to all attendees prior to the event and ensuring that attendees comply during the event.
