Some problem with student concert:
When to start: Start the work before two or three weeks. If there have limited access and have a big performer, then try to start it even earlier. The main part of the promotion should come in the week of the concerts. Reach everyone by promotion what you wanna tell because students decide just before they happen.
Advertising: For campus concerts, students are known by word of mouth and fliers about the event. Come out with the eliminator pitch of the event. If you have sometimes, with some persons who are not part of your concert, why they should come to this. You can make some basic fliers, an announcement about this.
