Introducing the new UC Merced Room Reservation System - EMS

The campus has been engaged in a project to implement a Room Reservation System that streamlines the reservation process for non-instructional spaces. Scheduling of instructional space (otherwise known as general assignment classrooms) will remain in Ad Astra. A team of stakeholders from various departments (Housing, Library, Athletics, Student Life, Business & Admin Services, and one stakeholder from each school) led by the Office of Space Planning & Analysis and OIT have selected EMS to provide the new Room Reservation System. EMS will replace the multiple mechanisms we currently have today for reserving rooms, and simplify the process of finding and securing space. Features of the new system include:

  • All non-instructional spaces including outdoor spaces are viewable in one system
  • Ability to search for space according to your space needs (features, capacity, etc.)
  • Ability to view room details like photos, amenities, and available configurations
  • Ability to book rooms through Outlook (for Windows users) or through a convenient web portal (for all users)
