The Office of Academic Scheduling is responsible for scheduling academic classes for all nine USM partner institutions on the Shady Grove campus. Additionally, the office handles one-time use requests from faculty and staff and manages Group Study rooms in Building III.
One-Time Room Requests
Staff may request additional space for specific classes, program meetings, information sessions, and other academic events through the online scheduling system: Virtual EMS (VEMS)
Through VEMS, requests must be made at least two business days before the date of your reservation to allow for your request to be processed. If the request is made within two days of the event, please contact the Academic Scheduling office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. A user account and brief training are required to request rooms through this system.
Faculty requesting additional space outside of their originally assigned classroom must contact their respective program director to submit the scheduling request.
Group Study Room Requests
Students enrolled in academic courses at the Universities at Shady Grove may request study space for 2-8 people. The eight available study rooms are located on the second, third, and fourth floors of Building III, Camille Kendall Academic Center.
