Event Form Name, Title, Type, & Organizations


Attendance and Details:

Enter an Expected Head Count for the event. Then, add an Event Description

1. Enter additional information about the event. The event description allows you to include important details about the event that did not fit in either the event name or event title. Grammar, punctuation and clarity matter. The event description allows for formatting of your text, but it is recommended that you do not use these features. 

Expected Head Count and Event Description


Date and Time:

Next, specify the date and time of the event. If the event occurs on multiple days, you will enter details in the next step.

Date & Time

1.     “The event begins and ends on the same day”: Your event will likely start and end on the same day. There are very few cases where you would need to uncheck this selection.  An example where this might occur is if you are having an event that starts at 10:00 pm and ends the next day at 1:00 am.

2.     Additional Time: You may add extra time for setup & takedown or pre & post-event activities.  This will add time to the duration of the reservation, but will not be shown on an external calendar.  For example, you may need 30 minutes to setup for the event and another 15 minutes to allow guests to arrive before the event starts.  This will add 45 minutes to the duration of your reservation, but the extra time will not be included on an external calendar.

Additional Time

Multi-Day Events Multi-Day Events:

In the calendar, the date you specified in the previous section will appear. If your event occurs on more than one day, please use the calendar to select additional dates. A list of your selections will appear alongside the calendar. If necessary, you may adjust event hours for any date by clicking on the Manage Occurrences button.

Location Search:

1.     Hide Conflicts & Enforce Headcount: These options should be unchecked to see all conflicts and potential rooms.

2.     Search by location name, if you know the location you want for your event.   You can either use the building code or building name.  For example, you can search using PSU or Plemmons Student Union.

3.     Search Filters can be also be used to find locations.  You can select categories, features, layouts, and capacities.

4.     An alternate way to search for rooms is by using Saved Searches, which includes a defined set of locations.  These searches may be searches you created and saved yourself, but also include any public searches.

5.     As you search, 25live will check venue availability based on the dates and times specified. Select linked titles to view location details. If applicable, click on Conflict Details to view why a location is not available.  

5.     Once you have identified the location you would like to request, click the Request button. This will add the location to the event form.

Please note, if your event will need more than one room you can request mutliple rooms in a single event request.

Resource Search:

1.     Search by resource name, if you know the resources you want for your event.  Resources are generally tied to a location/building.  For example, all resources for the Plemmons Student Union will begin with “PSU”, allowing you to use this as a search term.

2.     An alternate way to search for rooms is by using Saved Searches, which includes a defined set of resources.  These searches may be searches you created and saved yourself, but also include any public searches. 

3.     As you search, 25live will check resource availability based on the dates and times specified. Select linked titles to view resource details. If applicable, click Conflict Details to view related information.  

4.     Once you have identified the resource(s) you would like to request, click the Reserve button. This will add the resource to the event form.

Currently, there are very few resources that can be requested.  If you know you need resources (e.g. podium, microphone, projector, etc.) but you are unable to find  them using this search, please include the items you need in the comments field at the bottom of the event form.

  • The option to Cancel the event form is always available in the bottom right corner of the page, alongside the options to Preview and Save. If you select Cancel, be aware that your selections or changes will not save
  • Do not simply close your browser to cancel the event form.  If locations and resources have already been selected, they will be locked as pending, restricting other users from requesting them.  Please be sure to click Cancel.
  • The event request reference number is displayed after the event is saved. You can use this number later to quickly find the event in 25Live.
