VIU Safe Event Guide


Events that are core to the academic learning functions of the university no longer require university approval to proceed provided the above conditions are met.


All non-VIU event hosts or businesses wishing to use a VIU facility or outdoor location must receive approval from VIU first.

Please contact VIU directly to inquire about hosting your event at VIU this summer and fall.
