University Police

Special Event Services

Each year, Wright State University hosts a number of special events at the Nutter Center and within various venues across campus. The safety and security of those who host and attend these events are of the utmost importance. In an effort to ensure a safe and successful event while on the campus of Wright State University, the University Police Department provides security for many special events such as sporting events, concerts, student events, commencements, banquets, and special speakers, to name a few. These assigned officers will provide crowd control and traffic control and perform any other needed security measures.

Planning an event can be challenging and may involve many different departments and/or people.  Planning for the potential risks and hazards associated with an event is essential to the event's success. There are also other steps to planning a successful event, such as reserving the proper space/venue, getting the proper permits, and securing the necessary University approvals. View the links below for planning tips and event resources.

According to the Wright State University Handbook, a sponsored public event must have police officers present at all times, hired by the sponsoring group. The Director of Public Safety or his/her designee will determine the required number of officers present. If you have any questions, you may contact us at 937-775-2111 or email
