General Scheduling Information

All academic classroom and many UVA Recreation location requests require an event scheduler to confirm your reservation prior to use.  Upon submitting your event request, you will receive an automatic email with additional instructions pertaining to the space you selected.  It will also include the contact information for the department scheduler.  Please do not make definite plans to use the location you selected until you have received a confirmation notice from the event scheduler. 

Academic Classroom Priority:  Please note that while the academic schedulers will work diligently to avoid displacing  your confirmed event, academic courses take priority and the re-scheduling of a course may necessitate moving or cancelling your event.

Event Confirmation Delays at the Beginning of a Term:  At the beginning of each term, there will be a delay processing your event requests. 

  • Requests for weeknight events may not be confirmed until a few hours before the event begins.  This delay is due to the high number of events submitted at the start of the term and courses being moved due to enrollment changes, course/instructor requirements, etc..  
  • Events that occur after 5:00 PM on Friday through Sunday night are more likely to be confirmed in advance. 
  • The turnaround time to process your event request will decrease significantly after the add/drop period has passed and course schedules are solidified.


Non-scheduled closings:

If the University closes due to inclement weather, etc., all events are to be considered cancelled for that occurrence as buildings will be locked.


Event Visibility Changes:

Beginning with 2024 events, requestors will only be able to view events that they submit via 25Live.  

  • Other events will appear as "Private" within the location's availability grid and calendar.
  • Events submitted by a scheduler (on behalf of a requestor) will appear as "Private".
  • Need to advertise your event?  Please visit the University Events Calendar site:
  • Course information will remain visible for all users.
Express Scheduling (self-scheduling)

25Live offers the ability to quickly reserve specific "self-schedule" locations for single occurrence events via Express Scheduling. When reserving these specific spaces, no scheduler interaction or confirmation will be required. 

Express Schedule locations include:

* These spaces are only available for the respective school requestors.

To reserve a space using Express Scheduling: 

  1. Click on a link from the list above.  The respective space schedules will be viewed from the 25Live "Availability Grid" for today's date.
  2. Adjust the Availability Grid's date if necessary.
  3. Select an available time block within the grid and the Express Scheduling form will open.
  4. Name the event and adjust the end time if necessary.
  5. Click "Save".

You will receive an automatic email with your confirmation as well as additional information specific to the location you selected.

Multiple Occurrences:  If you need to reserve the space for multiple occurrences, use the instructions above but use the "Open in Form" option at the bottom of the Express Scheduling window.  This will open the full "Event Form" with the information pre-populated. 

Submitting your event using the full Event Form will require an event scheduler to confirm your event.
