UC Blue Ash College

Scheduling Spaces & Events

Space Scheduling and Event Services is the combined effort of One Stop Registration and the Events Department in the effort to schedule and support classes, meetings, and events at UC Blue Ash College. These pages contain the details about how to book spaces for a meeting or event, and to request potential services that are available.

Scheduling Meetings

UC Blue Ash College uses 25Live to schedule meetings and to reserve spaces. Every department has trained users who can assist with entries into the system. Others can still see what's available, and schedule to be trained themselves.

Event Services

UC Blue Ash College faculty, staff, students and alumni participate in hundreds of activities and events every year. Because events are a core part of how we communicate, interact, and engage with each other and the community, UC Blue Ash has an Events Department to assist with the preparation and execution of events.

External Usage and Rentals

UC Blue Ash College is available to be rented to outside organizations and groups. However, these groups must meet certain criteria and requirements in order to host events at UCBA. Also, there may be rental fees and other costs associated with outside use.

Differences Between Meetings & Events

While meetings and events both require space to be reserved, events typically have more to them in preparation, execution, and/or promotion, than meetings. For this reason, the Events Department at UC Blue Ash handles the requests for services such as housekeeping, room setup, IT support, and security through the event service request form. The below chart breaks down some of the typical differences between events and meetings. However, some meetings may require some of the same services that events typically require. In these cases, the events form should still be completed for these meetings.

Is it a meeting or event?

Meetings

Events

-- typically small

-- open to a particular group rather than the public, i.e., limited audience

-- focused on an issue or set of issues, or problem or set of problems

-- broadly educational &/or entertaining

-- features a specific speaker, performance, or group

-- audience engagement

-- allows the host institution to demonstrate its involvement in and commitment to the broader community

-- may involve support, planning, and organizational contributions from other institutions and groups

Meetings still require an events form to be completed if:
  • Room setup will be needed
  • If your meeting will have catering that will need setup, assistance, or cleanup
  • If meeting will need audio or video setup
  • If meeting will need security
  • any type of service, setup, or planning

Looking to book a room for a simple meeting that doesn't need setup or support? Every department has users trained on 25Live for making bookings like this. Learn more about scheduling meetings and to see a list of users.

UC Blue Ash College faculty, staff, students and alumni participate in hundreds of activities and events every year. Because events are a core part of how we communicate, interact, and engage with each other and the community, we have an Events Department to assist with the preparation and execution of events. The Event Department coordinates efforts with various other UCBA departments to assist in providing a wide array of services quickly and efficiently, to make it easier for faculty, staff, and students to plan and execute their events.

UC Blue Ash College uses R25 and 25Live to schedule and prepare all bookings. Faculty and staff are able to search this database to see what rooms are available and when, as well as make submissions directly in 25Live for meetings.

In order to make it easy to see what rooms are available at UC Blue Ash, a room index has been made available. This table includes all the spaces at UC Blue Ash and how they are reserved.
