25Live: Space and Event Scheduling

Open House RodeoWhat is 25Live?

Academic courses, events, and university-wide special events are scheduled through 25Live, the space and event scheduling software used at Cal Poly. In doing so, campus personnel are made aware of events and activities taking place on campus throughout the day. This is important not only for safety considerations, but also to ensure adequate service and support is provided to the campus community. In order to view events and space information in 25Live, users must authenticate using their Cal Poly username and password. If you are an external entity, please contact Cal Poly Conference and Event Planning for assistance.

  • 25Live provides a centralized system for scheduling and initiating workflow to support activities and events on campus, while also allowing individual scheduling entities to maintain policies managed by auxiliary campus partners.
  • 25Live provides a tool for automatically publishing calendars to the web.
  • Members of the campus community may use 25Live to view location information and check availability during the planning process.
