Scheduler Guide for EMC Reservations

About EMC Calendars

On January 6, 2014, the Maricopa Community Colleges transitioned from R25 Webviewer calendars to 25Live as the official space reservation and calendar system for Maricopa Community Colleges. It is a web-based system that can be accessed from any computer with Internet access from the following URL:

The EMC Public Calendars for Community, Student, and Employee were designed to provide information to each of the constituency groups on events and meetings that pertain to that group.  The EMC Public Calendars are not an inclusive list of all events and classes that are scheduled on campus, therefore, these calendars should not be used to find available locations, or to search for events in a particular space on campus.

For security and legal reasons, many reservations are intentionally not published to the public calendars.  However, as Maricopa Community College employees, all events (private and public) can be viewed by logging into 25Live and using the resources and instructions below.

25Live is managed by Instructional Services and events are jointly maintained by the Instructional Services and Business Services departments at EMC.

Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari are the recommended browsers for 25Live.  Internet Explorer is also compatible if using the newest version of IE.

Guidelines for Submission

All events utilizing any space on campus including outdoor spaces and vehicles, and whether the event is public or private, must be submitted through the EMC Reservation System and be approved prior to use.  Only MCCCD employees and student-workers with MEID usernames and passwords that are in the Human Capital Management (HCM) system may access the system. All other users must email to make a request.

All events requests are drafts until approved by the appropriate scheduler and the requestor has been notified that the event is confirmed. Please do not use any space on campus that does not have prior approval. Approval is required to ensure there are no conflicts, and for security access to spaces.

Reservation Dates and Timelines

Reservations require a minimum of a 24 hour notice. If requesting an event for the same day, request must be submitted to DL-EMC-EventRequests and must include the details required in the Event Wizard below. Please note, that a space is not confirmed until the appropriate scheduler reviews and approved the request and a confirmation is assigned.

Reservations are only accepted during specific timelines. Please refer to the EMC Calendar Guidelines website for specific dates.

  • Conference Rooms and Outdoor Spaces: Accepting requests up to approximately one-year in advance.
  • Classrooms: Accepting requests for active terms in which registration for that term has already begun.
  • Vehicles: Accepting requests for active terms in which registration for that term has already begun.
