Scheduling and Calendar

As you plan speakers, events and activities for the coming year, please remember to check the Miami University Events Calendar and list of religious holidays before finalizing dates. Doing so may identify a conflicting event on campus and assist in attracting a larger audience and more inclusive participation.

The University’s Events Calendar is automatically populated via the 25Live online room reservation system which is used to reserve most building/room spaces on campus. Events scheduled at auxiliary spaces not reserved through 25Live (Marcum, Shriver, etc.), need to be added manually. Please review the instructions for 25Live and FAQs about how to add your events to the Events Calendar.
