What You Need to Know About 25Live Room Reservation System Merging with the University Events Calendar

Click to Open

As of April 8, the University Events Calendar has been merged with the calendar from the university's 25Live room reservation system. Now, when you reserve a space for an event on campus, it will be added to the University Events Calendar. You'll no longer have to submit the same information in two separate systems.

When reserving a space through 25Live, please write a clear event title so that anyone viewing your event on the calendar will easily understand what it is. We also ask that you add an event description, including any necessary information about cost, registration and whether it is open to students, faculty, staff or the general public. If your submission does not have a clear event title or it is lacking an event description, we may ask for more information before approving your event.

If you have any questions about how to use 25Live, please contact Deb Burgo at dburgo@rwu.edu.
