If your potential venue is not listed in 25Live, email to secure a room/site. For more information on what this request should include, please scroll to the bottom of this linked page: Office of the University Registrar - Events.

Make a note of the reference number in 25Live - this is the Registrar's confirmation number. Sample: 2012 –AAWQRE


Place work requests for cleanup, equipment, etc. These are necessary before you can confirm the space and fill out the PE 100 – APPLICATION FOR USE OF UNIVERSITY FACILITY form.
