Gatherings and Parties

We highly recommend hosting virtual events, however, if you are considering hosting a gathering you must follow the new state guidelines for social, informal gatherings that go into effect on April 15:

  • Indoor Capacity: Max 25% of seated capacity in setting where capacity limits exist, or 25 people, whichever is fewer. Must at all times remain at least 6 feet apart.
  • Outdoor Capacity: Maximum 50 people, with enough space to allow attendees to remain at least 6 feet apart at all times from those not in their household.
  • Designate a host or organizer who maintains an attendance list with contact information in case contact tracing is needed later.
  • Wear a face covering at all times (see complete Yolo County guidance for exceptions).
  • Practice healthy hygiene habits with frequent hand washing and not sharing items.
  • Minimize food or beverage sharing.
  • Do not attend any gathering if you have symptoms of illness or are at high-risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19.

As hosts and student leaders you are responsible for ensuring appropriate measures for health and safety are taken during all group activities and events as outlined in the public health policies and requirements on the Campus Ready website. Additionally, the UC Davis public health policy (Interim 290-01) outlines requirements that all students must follow, and non-compliance may result in loss of organizational privileges. Please continue to keep Davis healthy and safe by getting vaccinated and getting tested at least once per week on campus.

Policies and Resources


On April 2, 2021 the state released an updated version of the Blueprint for a Safe Economy, indicating that guidelines for events and gatherings are changing.

MU Tables

The Center for Student and Memorial Union Staff are dedicated to keeping the members of registered student organizations and their families are safe and healthy. The guidance from the California Department of Public Health State indicates that “all gatherings should be postponed or cancelled.” Gatherings are defined as “meetings or other events that bring together persons from multiple households at the same time for a shared or group experience in a single room, space, or place such as an auditorium, stadium, arena, large conference room, meeting hall, or other indoor or outdoor space.” They pose an especially high danger of transmission and spread of COVID-19. This being said, in order to keep the community healthy, the Memorial Union tables will not be reservable for the fall quarter of 2020.

See the full message sent to RSO Leaders.

Event & Meeting reservations

For the time being, no reservations will be accepted for Spring quarter 2021. The Center for student involvement will update primary leaders of each organization with information about reservation requests for the remainder of the school year. Please understand that these restrictions are fluid in nature and based on the guidelines from local, state, and federal government concerning COVID19.

For additional information please email csireservation@gmail.com.

rso housing facility information

action items for sfl facilities

We all share a high degree of concern for the safety of fraternity and sorority members planning to live in the facilities (including house-corporation-owned, rented or on-campus Greek facilities) for the coming fall quarter. To that end, we are requesting that each organization that has an official lettered Greek facility and its house corporation advisors develop a Facility Readiness Plan (FRP) plan and file a copy of the plan with the Center for Student Involvement, as a condition of your registration for the 2020-21 academic year.
