Greek and other student organizations which lease land from the University of Mississippi and plan to construct or renovate a facility on that land must submit plans/specifications prepared and stamped by a licensed Mississippi Architect and/or contractor where necessary in accordance with the Greek Housing Architectural Design Guidelines (GHADG). A complete set of the GHADG are available HERE.
This form is the first step in receiving approval from the Fraternity & Sorority Facilities Committee (FSFC) for any proposed construction, renovation or update projects taking place on land owned by the University of Mississippi. A project may not commence until written approval is provided by the FSFC. Once received by the University of Mississippi, Office of the Dean of Students, the project will be logged-in and assigned a project number. The Greek organization will be notified that the project has been accepted into the system for review by receipt of it's project number.
Registering an event through the Office of the Dean of Students requires the Registered Student Organization (RSO) to submit an Event Registration form through OrgSync. The registration process must be completed at least 15 business days prior to the event taking place. Upon submission of the event information, the advisor(s) of the organization will be notified of the scheduled event. The Student Organization Advisory Committee will consider exceptions, but exceptions will be made rarely.
RSOs must register an event if it meets any of the following criteria:
The event will be held outdoors.
Alcoholic beverages will be served.
The event will have amplified sound.
More than 100 guests are expected.
The event location is within a 50 mile radius of campus.
The event is open to off-campus guests.
Regardless of the event location, the RSO is responsible for all usage fees and any damages that might occur to the event facility. The sponsoring organization is also responsible for the cleanup of on-campus events. Failure to meet this requirement will result in charges for the cleanup of trash or damage to property.
RSOs are not required to register their regularly scheduled business meetings, even if they are held on-campus. Additionally, information tables or other table set-up events do not require registration.
Finally, RSOs are required to have read and understood University of Mississippi policies regarding event hosting. Events must adhere to University of Mississippi, state, local, and federal laws.
