Photonics Center Room Booking

The Photonics Center has a new procedure for booking the select Photonics Center spaces shown below.  We will be using the software 25Live instead of a Google calendar.  If you need to book one of the rooms below, please visit https://25live.collegenet.com/bu and request a space.  Unless you have already used 25Live for booking 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 “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 roomres@bu.edu letting them know that you completed the first two steps above. The reservations team will authenticate you.

Yvonne Cancino (icancino@bu.edu), who was previously responsible for Photonics room booking in the Google calendar, will now be the primary approver for select Photonics space requests in 25Live.  As of Wednesday, August 23, Yvonne will be responding to and approving space requests exclusively in 25Live.  Thank you for your cooperation.
