25Live is an application used to search for space availability at Marquette University.  It is a tool used to request spaces and schedule events.  In addition, faculty may request room changes for ADA issues, class size and pedagogical reasons.  25Live provides information on space availability and room attributes and features of assignable spaces.   

  • Google Chrome and/or Firefox Mozilla should be used for this program to work effectively, as 25Live is least compatible with Internet Explorer.
  • It is important to note access is not required to view space availability and room attributes/features.
  • This is a good first step if you're planning an event and know where you want to be, but don't have specific dates in mind.

Choosing Yes will let you set up additional dates and times for your event if it repeats regularly or irregularly.

Making a selection will bring you to the next page.

Set up your meeting date and time.  Repeating event:  choose the first meeting date on this page.  This step will narrow down the rooms  available further by date and time.  The checkbox asking about the first occurrence under the dates will change depending on whether your event will repeat or not.  There is a drop-down selection for times on every half hour, but the text can be edited by clicking or tapping inside the box, creating events that can have more precise times.

Choose a room

On the next page, you will be able to search for available rooms based on the information you input on previous pages (expected attendance and date/time).  For an accurate search, do NOT uncheck the two default checked boxes.

There are several methods to search for a room, but the easiest way is to use the Search by Location Name function.  Search by the name of a building or its abbreviation, hover over an option to bring up additional information, including room features.  Rooms that have a green checkmark are available for all meeting times and dates.

Selecting a room will bring it up on the right side of your screen.  A room MUST be in this portion of the screen to be reserved.  Ensure that only one room is in the location before continuing.  Remove rooms using the red x in the corner.  

Click or tap Next once you've chosen a room for your event and it is the only room on the right side of the screen.

On this page, you are able to add Comments, which the individual approving the request would see, or Confirmation Notes, which would appear on your Confirmation Page after you've finished creating your event.

Click or tap Next when complete.

Verify/Change Event State

You are unable to edit the Event State.  Your event will remain Tentative until your event is reviewed and approved.

Click or tap the blue Save button in the middle of the screen.

Event Confirmation & Searching For your Event

Once your event is saved, you will be taken to a confirmation page that will have a green banner.

The confirmation page has several helpful options:

What's Next
View Details:  view Event Details of the submitted request.
Edit:  edit the Event Details of the request.
Copy:  create a duplicate of the event to make it easier when requesting separate but similar events.  You will be able to edit every field again for the new event, but the information entered for the previous event will auto-populate.
Email:  email details of this request to its stakeholders or anyone else.

More Events Options
Print Confirmation:  print the Reference ID and a summary of the request.
Create a To Do:  send this request to a To Do to contact in 25Live.  For example, if you have instructions for Facilities then you can send them a To Do.  View all To Dos in your Task Tab.
Manage Relationships:  link this event with other related events.  For instance, link a study group with associated class.
Manage Bindings:  link this event with other related events that occur at the same locations.  These may be used for cross-listed courses.
Take Ownership of this Even:  own this reservation so you will be listed as the primary contact for this event.
Add to Starred:  add this event to your favorites.  We highly recommend requesters to star submitted reservations so events can be easily retrieved and monitored.

On the left is a confirmation of the details of the event.  At the bottom of the details, next to Tentative is an ID number that can be copied and pasted to search for your event later in the Search for Events tab.

The Scheduler and Requestor will receive confirmation emails with the event's information and a link back to the event's details.  You can check back at this link at any time to see the status of your event.

Search for events using the Search for Events or Pre-Defined Events Searches tabs.  These search options are always under the Events tab and can be accessed at any time.

The Search for Events option is the easiest way to search for your event.  You can search by name or reference number (as mentioned earlier in this step).  It's not necessary to type the full name - keywords will bring it up too.

In 25Live, the most important information will usually be in the middle of the screen, but pay attention to things on the periphery.

The middle section has the information you're currently working on.
