Johns Hopkins adopts 25Live as universitywide academic and event scheduling platform

All university divisions and campuses are expected to complete transition by this summer

Johns Hopkins University has selected CollegeNET's 25Live as the universitywide academic and event scheduling platform, opting for a modern and versatile system to manage class schedules and the multitude of events happening across JHU's campuses and locations.

Ultimately, the platform will help JHU create a more connected and collaborative academic and event management environment.

"The recent implementation of 25Live on campus marks a significant advance in streamlining classroom scheduling and event planning, ensuring that students, faculty, and staff will be able to access and book campus facilities with unprecedented ease and flexibility," said Stephen Gange, executive vice provost and professor of epidemiology. "Our efforts align closely with the university's Ten for One goal to strengthen the on-campus experience and transform how our community comes together, fostering a more connected and vibrant campus life."

The move to 25Live is part of the university's Student Services Excellence Initiative, a multiyear effort launched in 2016 to enhance the way JHU delivers a broad range of student services in recruiting and admissions, registration, financial aid, billing, career services, advising, and more. The platform will be managed by the Office of the University Registrar, in partnership with University Information Systems.

Benefits of the 25Live system include:

  • The ability to schedule classrooms, event spaces, conference rooms, hot-desking arrangements, and various other resources.
  • A robust events management system.
  • Reporting and analytical capabilities.
  • Real-time integration with the university's Student Information System.
  • A cloud-based application compatible with all desktop and mobile devices.
  • Strong technical and security features.

Phase I of the implementation included the launch of 25Live at the Hopkins Bloomberg Center in Washington, D.C., in the summer of 2023, along with updates at the School of Nursing and the Carey Business School's Harbor East campus.

Phase II, in which all remaining JHU schools and campuses will transition from the Ad Astra system that has been widely in use, is currently underway. The full transition to 25Live is expected to be completed this summer.

Training sessions are ongoing, and support resources are available to ensure that every member of the Johns Hopkins community can take advantage of the benefits of 25Live. Divisional representatives have been and will continue to engage with stakeholders as the project progresses.

More information about 25Live will be available on the Office of the University Registrar website and from campus partners as the university approaches a soft-launch later this spring.
