To get started, complete the brief online tutorial.
The tutorial goes over how to use the 25Live reservation system and provides an overview of the space use guidelines. It should take no more than 3 minutes to complete and includes a how-to video (2 min 49 sec).
Q: Why are all of the spaces "restricted" when I try to create a reservation in 25Live?
You may be seeing the “restricted” message because...
You haven’t completed training yet, or
The spaces you are viewing truly are restricted during this academic year.
First, complete the required tutorial by clicking the button above labeled, "START FIRST TIME USER TRAINING." It will take you to another portal where you log in with your UW NetID (look for the white log-in button on the top right hand corner). Make sure you select the training for students. It should not take more than 3 minutes to complete.
When finished, you must restart your internet browser and then go back to this website (tacoma.uw.edu/study). Restarting your internet browser is important, as this step resets your access in the 25Live system. When you click the button titled "SUBMIT A NEW RESERVATION" you will see all the space options, as described in the training video.
If you continue to run into issues, please send an email to email@example.com.
Q: The space that I want to reserve is not in 25Live. What gives?
Study spaces on campus during COVID-19 restrictions are limited. All spaces that are available and reservable are in 25live. Click here to see the full list of study spaces available.
Q: Why does 25Live Express Scheduling look different?
The 25Live application was updated on June 16, 2021 for UW students. If you would like a refresher, please watch the updated tutorial video.
Due to restrictions in operations during COVID-19, we are unable to offer non-reservable study spaces on campus.
