Scheduling virtual meetings:

In order to help better coordinate the large number of virtual meetings and events that the campus is conducting given current circumstances, a new process for posting and viewing events of interest to the campus has been developed. 

Although this process uses SpaceFinder, which is our normal method of booking spaces for events, the Campus Events space isn't tied to a physical room. We hope that by creating this space for you to post events, we can help to prevent the issue of Zoom calls and other events of interest for the campus community from being scheduled in conflict with other events.
