Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Welcome to the Buckeye Event Network

“BEN” (Buckeye Event Network) was designed to help student organizations plan and reserve outdoor space on campus. You will need to use your university user name (name.#) and password to log in.

Once the form is submitted, your request will be sent to the BEN Coordinator to review. If all the necessary information is completed and the outdoor space is available, a TENTATIVE reservation will be booked for your organization. The information from your online request form is then sent to several University Departments (T & P, OSUPD, FOD and Public Safety) for approval, so that you don’t have to contact them all directly. If additional information is needed to approve your event, you will be contacted by someone from that department needing more information. Once approval is granted, the status of your reservation will be upgraded from tentative to confirmed. Please keep in mind that the more information you enter regarding your event, the easier and faster it will be to obtain approval from each of the departments. Please note this process takes at least 2 weeks for confirmation to be granted.

Equipment rental (tables, chairs, etc) are NOT INCLUDED in BEN approval. If approved, you must provide your own equipment or rent from an external company.

Rain/Indoor locations are not included in the BEN process. Please be sure to request indoor space in case of inclement weather through the Ohio Union Plan an Event or Classroom Space.

This process is intended to help ensure that your event is a safe and successful one. Any questions or comments should be directed to the BEN Coordinator at

If you are currently not a student organization but would like to become one or have any other student organization related questions, please contact the KBK Center for Student Leadership and Service at
