University Calendar

The University Calendar is our central resource for information about GW events. The calendar informs a large university audience about school/college, center/institute and departmental events and initiatives. University events are quite varied, ranging from program information sessions to museum exhibitions to athletic games and more.



About the Calendar

The calendar features events organized, hosted or sponsored by GW that take place on- and off-campus. Events may be open to the general public or might be private events for GW faculty, staff, students and/or alumni. GW will not accept event submissions to the calendar from individuals or organizations from outside of the university, with the exception of conferences or other events that are held in GW venues.

If you’re not a University Calendar administrator, you may submit events through the online entry form.

Best Practices

  • Frequently, in Event Feeds, users only look at the Event Title, so yours should provide an accurate and interesting description of your event.
  • Put the most important information about your event at the top of your description. Use bold text for important sections, and be sure not to use special formatting or text colors.
  • Provide inline links to relevant content instead of listing full URL’s, and configure those links to open in new windows. Do not use “click here” instead of descriptive words.
  • Events with images are more engaging. Images should be 1080 pixels wide by 720 pixels tall. Don't use flyers, posters or images with large amounts of text. You should have explicit permission and rights to any images included in your event.
