Using the Georgia Southern Campus Calendar
The Campus Calendar is the official, university-wide calendar for the entire Georgia Southern community. Events posted to the Campus Calendar are highly visible and are displayed in a variety of locations online, including the University's home page and within the MyGeorgiaSouthern portal for faculty, staff and students.
Please note that the Campus Calendar is ONLY for Georgia Southern sponsored events. Events not sponsored by Georgia Southern are not to be posted to the calendar. The Office of Marketing and Communications reserves the right to remove events not meeting this criteria from the calendar.
Need to reserve a room for your event? Use R25 Live, the official room scheduling resource for the University.
How do I post an event to the calendar?
Designated representatives from each area can post events directly to the Campus Calendar. To do so, go to calendar.georgiasouthern.edu and click the link to Submit New in the top right menu bar. Sign in with your MyGeorgiaSouthern credentials.
If you don't have access to post events, please send your event information to your area's content owner. You can also request calendar posting privileges from your content owner.
Detailed Posting Instructions
When a new account is created, a user will be given access to a main calendar that corresponds with their area (i.e. Admissions staff have access to the Admissions calendar), along with several additional calendars (Lectures, Arts and Entertainment, Public Events and Student Life). Any additional calendar access needs to be requested and approved by both the area's content owner and the University web team.

User (Optional) Calendars
User calendars are custom calendars created for individual departments that want to display their own events on their website in an RSS feed. These calendars are created by request only and may be marked for removal if not used regularly.
Calendar Style Guide
Short, concise entries are suggested. If you have additional information, such as forms, these materials should be referenced at a provided URL where the information resides. It is a best practice to keep a consistent entry format for your events by using a naming convention identified by your areas and administrators (i.e., the word "Training" for training events, etc.).
Every calendar entry must include the required fields: Name, Date, Point of Contact and must designate the calendar on which the event should appear. The rest of the information should be captured in the narrative/description section:
