Centralized Scheduling Service (CSS)

The Centralized Scheduling Serivce (CSS) or the EMS Web App is a web-based scheduling portal for faculty, staff, and students.

CSS can be accessed here: https://ems.richmond.edu/EmsWebApp/. Valid University log-in credentials are needed to book and request space. 

Benefits of the Centralized Scheduling Service:

  • Fair and transparent use of University facilities
  • Access from any web browser
  • Real time reporting of availability of campus locations

Why isn't every location available to schedule on the CSS?

EMS and the Centralized Scheduling Service requires clear definition of business rules in order to maximize its potential. If a location is not available to request or schedule using the CSS, it could be for any number of reasons.

  • The location is controlled by a specific department such as a conference room.
  • The process for scheduling the location online has not yet been clearly defined.
  • We may want to work directly with customers when scheduling the location.

If you don't see something that you would like to schedule, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to assist you. Room access is based on template access.
