The School of Medicine and Health Sciences adopted a new system for booking classrooms.

The School of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Milken Institue School of Public Health launched a new system to streamline classroom reservations, according to a release Friday.

The new scheduling system, dubbed Event Management Services, allows users to view classroom availability and create, edit or cancel their reservations without having to contact the schools’ classroom services office, the release states.

Reservations will still require confirmation, according to the release.

Classrooms in the medical and public health schools are booked more than 6,000 times each year, the release states.

Last year, the medical school received $3.9 million to renovate labs, classroom and other facilities to improve student and faculty experience.

Staff who regularly book classroom space can attend a workshop Friday to learn how to use the new system.
