How do I get access to Virtual EMS?

  • Your organization must have completed the 2015-2016 Student Group Registration Form on MyInvolvement and received confirmation of approval.
  • You must have been selected as a Reservation Coordinator by your student organization (each group is allowed to choose no more than two) during the registration process. Your President must have sent you a formal invitation for this new position through MyInvolvement and you must have accepted the invitation.
  • Approval of your registration (a notification of which is received by the group President) and your acceptance of the Reservation Coordinator position allows us to upload your group into EMS.
  • Reservation Coordinators will be uploaded daily from MyInvolvement to EMS.

All registered student organizations are expected to submit an Off-Campus Event Registration Form when hosting/co-hosting an event at an off-campus location.
