The event calendar is optimized to display landscape images (1580x800px preferred) with little to no text or branding within the image. Submitted photos are subject to approval and may be substituted for reasons of quality assurance.
Always add a caption to your photo that is descriptive of what is being shown in the photo, so that users using assistive technology (like screen readers) can fully engage with your event listing.

Event Submission Policy

Dalhousie’s event calendar is a central resource for students (prospective and current), faculty, staff, alumni, prospective students, and community members looking for information on public events at the university.

To be included in the event calendar, events must:

  • Be organized, sponsored, co-sponsored or hosted by the university or a university-affiliated organization.
  • Be open to the Dalhousie or broader community beyond the members of an individual student society, department, or unit.
  • Require attendance at a physical location (or, as appropriate, a virtual one) at specific dates/times.
  • Include appropriate contact information.

While Communications, Marketing & Creative Services reviews events prior to posting, submitters are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of event information, and for contacting us via events@dal.ca to update the submission if there are any changes or cancellations. We may modify or reject events on the grounds of spelling, grammar, or appropriateness.

Note that Dalhousie’s event calendar does not replace the need to schedule space for events. Please visit Event & Conference Services for more information about booking event space on campus in Halifax and Truro.

The time it takes our team to review and post events can vary depending on the capacity at any given time. Please allow at least 2-3 business days for your event listing to be processed.

Please note that the event calendar is not an archive and past events are regularly removed.
