 About this event type

A university event license follows the same format as the standard event license, except this event is co-branded with a university name (e.g., "Dîner en Noir, Howard University”). This means that the event is hosted by that college or university, so you’ll need permission from that school to hold the event and to use the university's name.


A university license must be held by a current student, faculty or staff member of that university. (Sorry, former staff or alumni aren’t eligible to apply!) One license is allocated per university. However, in special circumstances where a university has schools located in different cities, we can permit licenses for separate events.


The following applies to all university events:


Naming your event

Your event will be named after the full name of the university (e.g., "Dîner en Noir, Howard University”, "Dîner en Noir, Georgetown University”).



The audience should be geared toward the university community of students, faculty and/or administration.



Like standard Dîner en Noir events, university events can have no maximum number of guests. However, only individuals who have attended an official Dîner en Noir event can organize an event with more than 1000 attendees.



For a university event type, your focus or theme should be multidisciplinary and broad, and address a variety of topics. You’ll want to feature a diversity performing acts, speakers from across several disciplines, and speakers from the university where you’re holding your event. To get an idea of what you want the focus of your event to be, learn more about themes.


University Events can be as brief as a couple of hours, and up to one day in length.
