Centralized Room Scheduling

UNMC Centralized Room Scheduling system manages the scheduling functions of the various auditoriums, classrooms, conference rooms, atria, and plaza space to ensure that requests for use are processed in accordance to policy. This is a complex task with multiple factors involving priority of use, number of participants, use of multimedia and distance learning equipment as well as other variables. To insure accurate and timely delivery of this service, the scheduling process requires teamwork and cooperation between those requesting rooms along with the scheduling staff.

Centralized Room Scheduling only schedules for the following classrooms and auditoriums locations: Durham Outpatient Center, Durham Research Center I, Durham Research Center II, Wittson Hall, Swanson Hall, Eppley Science Hall, Bennett Hall, University Hospital, Lied Transplant Center, Student Life Center, and the atria and plaza spaces. Section 3 titled Rooms Scheduled through Centralized Scheduling provides more details about locations scheduled through Centralized Room Scheduling. In Section 4 titled Other Information list contact information for locations not scheduled here. Please read the process and criteria prior to scheduling your event. The process and procedures have been updated as of February 2012.


On-line requests are processed on the basis of the nature of the event and the time requested. This will also apply to after-hours use of the DRC Auditorium. Please note, as the Commons area hosts lunch time vendors and is one of the few "legal" places for occupants to eat lunch, requests made over the lunch hour will almost always be denied.
