Photonics Center Room Reservations
The Photonics Center uses 25Live to reserve the select Photonics Center spaces shown below. If you need to reserve one of the rooms below, please visit https://25live.collegenet.com/bu and request a space. Unless you have already used 25Live for reserving other spaces, you will need to be granted access. Please complete these steps before using 25Live:
- Complete the brief ‘Event Scheduling in 25Live’ training, found on Blackboard Learn. (http://learn.bu.edu) If you don’t have access to Blackboard, you may watch the two brief “Basic Event Scheduling” video tutorials here instead.
- Log into 25Live (initial login creates your User ID). (https://25live.collegenet.com/bu/)
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting them know that you completed the first two steps above. The reservations team will authenticate you.
Yvonne Cancino (email@example.com) is the approver for select Photonics space requests in 25Live. She responds to and approves space requests exclusively in 25Live.
