These events may be open to the general public, the Texas Tech community or a segment of the Texas Tech community. All submissions must adhere to TTU Operating Policies and Procedures, including TTU IT Security Policies, specifically the University Acceptable Use Guidelines.
Posting an Event - Guidelines
- You must have a ttu.edu email address, and you will be required to supply your eRaider username and password. If you need technical assistance, please contact IT Help Central at (806) 742-HELP (4357).
- All announcements must be submitted by a Texas Tech University employee or student representing a formal university organization; such as a division, department, school, or registered student organization, that must be identified in the event. Request authorization to post on behalf of an organization.
- Events must be entered into the calendar at least one week prior to the actual event date, unless an exception is granted based on unusual circumstances. Likewise, events cannot be entered more than one year prior to the event date. Exception requests can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Specify who can attend the event if it is not open to the public or to the entire Texas Tech community. Include the location of where the event will take place. Be sure to proofread your submissions for any errors.

- Remember, your event will "share the stage" with other events in the calendar. Use language that will explain your event to someone who knows absolutely nothing about it. Include as many details as possible: contact information, resource links, restrictions, cost, location, time, etc.
- Make your titles descriptive. For example, rather than "Lecture," use "Music Lecture Series: Dialogues and Adventures; James Decker, Trombone.
- "Elaborate on the event in the description field, but try not to repeat the same information from the title.
