Student Organizations Handbook  COVID-19 Student Organization Guide

The Student Organization Handbook contains general information relevant to student organizations, as well as information about many aspects of event planning during a typical semester. 

The COVID-19 Student Organization Management Guide addresses current guidelines, modifications and recommendations as we operate under the COVID-19 situation. 

As of July 12, 2021, a Plan for Meeting Community Standards at University Affiliates’ Events is no longer required for in-person events.  However, as conditions related to COVID may change, groups planning events should monitor the community standards and information related to events and gatherings found at https://carolinatogether.unc.edu.  

As of August 6, 2021, masks are required at all times for indoor meetings and events in a University building. Face masks are not required when outdoors but they are strongly encouraged, especially when participating in any type of group event or gathering.  Additionally, students who attend any indoor, off-campus events or activities of registered student organizations must wear masks at all times. This standard will remain in place until further notice.

Please familiarize yourself with these documents and contact the SLL staff at studentlife@unc.edu with any questions.
