Musicians on stage at UNIKAT

Directions: creating a new event on the event platform

How do I create an event?

A public event, to which the non-university public is being invited, can be created in your own login area. This can either be done directly via the dashboard using the "create event" field or under the "event" tab by clicking on the "create event" field.   

Important: Job advertisements are not published via the event portal, but via the job portal of the University of Bayreuth!

Is it an internal or external event?

By internal events we mean events that are only aimed at university members. Examples could be lecture series, workshops for students, etc. These events must be marked as "internal event" in the event portal via switches. They are published on the University of Bayreuth website at and on the campus monitors.

External events are events aimed at the general public, such as tours of the Ecological-Botanical Garden and the Bayreuth City Talks. They are published on the University of Bayreuth website at, on the campus monitors and on the event websites of the city of Bayreuth.
