What is 25Live?
25Live is Iona University's central source for reserving rooms for all non-academic events and lets authorized users view event information and request the use of space from any computer or mobile device. Adding events to 25Live allows users to reserve space on campus AND have their events show up on campus event calendars.
How do I access 25Live?
You may access 25Live here. You will be presented with the 25Live Home screen, where you sign in using your computer user id and password. NOTE: A training session is required before an account is granted access to use the system. Please use this form to request a training session.
Who can use 25Live?
25Live can be accessed by all faculty, staff and administrators once their account is granted access after a training session.
Why should I use 25Live? Can I just call the room owner to reserve a space?
It is mandatory to use 25Live as it is the only acceptable and recognized method for scheduling events and reserving resources on campus. Using 25Live is a very efficient way of finding an available space for your event. The system is set up to include a full inventory of available spaces of all types – worship, meeting, performance, grounds, etc. Not only is an inventory available but the system keeps track of availability of those spaces easily allowing you to find a space that is currently available in real time.
Once you have reached the 25Live home page, use the "Sign In" link in the upper-right corner. You will be brought to Iona's single-sign-on to log in by using your Iona username and password (Note: your credentials will only work if you have completed an introductory training session.).
When you first log in, you will be brought to the Calendar page. If you don't see the Calendar page upon first logging in, you can access it under the 'More' menu in the top-right on your desktop. This will default to showing a one-week window of reservation requests. Use the toolbar at the top of the page to change the range of dates.
You can always click the '25Live Pro' link at the top to see your Home Dashboard. In the bottom-center of your Dashboard, you'll notice a box for "Your Events" which is a quick way for you to find all of the requests you have submitted through the system.
Note: 25Live will display the Home Dashboard, Calendar or Availability view when you log in based on which one you last used.
