25Live Event Reservations

Pre-approved access is required to place reservation requests via 25Live. To obtain access, all CUMC staff members that need to manage room requests for their department must attend a one hour training session.
  • If you will not be placing reservation requests frequently as part of your job duties, we ask that you find someone in your department that already has a login to place the request for you.
  • Anyone can view information in 25Live to see what is available, a login is only required to place a reservation request.
  • Our three page training handout Adobe Acrobat PDF Icon covers basic information on using 25Live including placing a reservation request, however we strongly recommend attending training.

Training sessions for placing reservations in 25Live are on the following dates from 11:00am to 11:50am, and are held in HSC LL103 (Hammer Lower Level 1) unless otherwise noted.

  • Thursday, April 11th
  • Thursday, May 23rd
