Room Scheduling Policies and Procedures

Reserving a Classroom (Oxford Campus)

Through room request software 25Live, student organizations and Miami University staff and faculty members can reserve academic classroom spaces for events such as meetings, study sessions, exams, guest lectures, and film viewings. Step-by-step instructions on how to submit a room request can be found on the 25Live Instructions page.

Students, faculty, and staff use their Miami Unique ID and password to sign into 25Live and submit a request to reserve a classroom. Requests must be submitted with an individual’s account. Any requests submitted with an entity account will not be approved.

Room requests for weekend events must be submitted no later than 10 a.m.(ET) on the preceding Friday. Requests submitted after this will not be approved.

Classrooms are shared spaces within the University community. To remain organized and accessible, all furniture and equipment must be returned to their original positions after use, and all trash from the event must be removed from the room. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in the inability to reserve space in the future.

Requests to use academic classroom space on the Oxford campus will be reviewed by staff members in the Office of the University Registrar. If you have questions about reserving a room on the Oxford campus, contact

Groups without Miami login credentials may reserve a room by contacting Conference Services at or 513-529-3591.
