UR Late Night Event Fund

Student organizations are welcome to submit requests for supplemental funding to plan and implement late night programming for University of Rochester students. Awards of up to $500 will be given to programs that meet the following criteria:

  • The event must occur primarily between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. on Friday or Saturday nights.
  • The event must be inclusive of all students and appeal to a broad audience.
  • The event must be creative and unique, providing a programming option that does not typically exist for most students.

Examples of past events include Jazz Night or Comedy Club in the May Room, Karaoke or Open Mic Nights in the Hive, and Renting out a dance club in Rochester.
