Requests for EVENT SPACE are now being confirmed for Spring 2020.

Spring requests for ACADEMIC CLASSROOM SPACE are currently on a tentative hold and will be confirmed during/after the ADD/DROP PERIOD.

If your request falls during the add/drop period, a confirmation email will be sent 24-48 hours in advance. If your request falls after the add/drop period, a confirmation email will be sent shortly after that date. Please monitor your requests in 25Live.

25Live Pro is now running

All of the options/capabilities are still available to you.
Please take a chance to explore the new system and let us know if you have any questions - roomassignments@tc.columbia.edu

You can monitor your requests in 25Live through the following:
Go to Search --> Select Object: Events --> Events You Have Requested (located under the Saved Searches (optional) 

  *You can either view by "List" or by "Calendar" - List is good for seeing the state of the request; Calendar helps when there are more than one location assigned to different dates, this view also reflects the times of the event. Make sure that you have adjusted the calendar to reflect the dates that you are needing to see.
