Astra Schedule is a central calendar for OWU’s rooms, events, classes, equipment, service providers, catering, students, faculty and event attendees. All of Astra’s info can be viewed and edited easily from the OWU Astra portal.
Requesting a Room Through Astra
Room reservations are now made through Astra Schedule’s portal. In order to reserve a room on campus students, faculty, and staff should navigate to the portal page, make sure to log in, and then click the “Events” tab on the top bar. It is necessary to click “Event Request” and fill in the information for your event/meeting, etc. before you will be able to request a room.
It will then take you to the application to use of campus space. You’ll need to fill out your personal information as well as any information about your club/event.
Following this, there is a grey box which you will press “Add Meeting”. Enter your times, requested building and room, you can also select if this is a single meeting or recurring from this page. After pressing “Add Meeting” in the bottom left corner, it will take you back to the application page where you’ll need to press “Request Rooms” on the right side of the grey box in order to select a room for your meeting to take place in.
From this page, it will show you what rooms are available at your requested time and day. If there is a specific room you are looking for, you can expand the filters such as “Building”, “Room” etc.. Once you click on a room, it will say “Selected” in a green box next to the room name. When you are finished, press “Ok” and you will return to the application main page.
To finish up, you’ll need to fill in the room setup description, if the meeting requires catering and any additional services. After this is completed, you can press submit.
You cannot complete an event registration/room reservation without logging in.
