Wagner College Events & Scheduling

Fall 2021 Meeting & Event Scheduling

Wagner College must abide by the Key to NYC guidelines for indoor dining locations, entertainment venues, and athletic/fitness facilities. This includes the following campus locations:

  • Main Hall: Theatre
  • Spiro Sports Center
    • Aerobics Studio
    • Fitness Center
    • Gym
    • Pool
    • Weight Room
  • Stage One Theatre
  • Wagner Union
    • Faculty Dining Room
    • Main Dining Hall

When an event/activity is being held in one of the above spaces all guests ages 12 and older must provide proof of vaccination and valid ID.

For all indoor campus events:

  1. All guests must be entered in the campus visitor management system, Envoy. Visitor will receive an email confirming visit and directions on providing documentation in to OnTask. For access, training or information on Envoy, contact the IT Help Desk.
  2. Visitors must upload valid negative COVID test, proof of vaccination and photo ID. Documents will be approved/rejected by Human Resources. If approved guest will receive an email to download/print their Wagner Pass.
  3. All rooms have been returned to their previous capacities. When possible it is recommended that you request a space slightly larger than your expected capacity to allow for physical distancing.

In addition to the rules listed above, all campus events and meetings must:

  • Ensure that all students, faculty, staff and approved visitors in attendance are wearing appropriate face coverings and practicing social distancing.
  • Assist in cleaning by using the products provided in the space to wipe down any surfaces used. Please help us in reporting if these products have been depleted by contacting Campus Operations.
  • The event organizer must record attendance for each meeting and be able to produce attendance records upon request for the purposes of contact tracing.

As the semester progresses, the policies above may be revisited to increase capacities, re-open certain locations, and begin permitting public attendance at events as local circumstances improve.

If you are planning on holding a virtual-only event during this time and would still like it to be published to the https://wagner.edu/newsroom/events/ and Daily Bulletin, you can submit a request via AdAstra and deselect the “Requires Room” box in the Event Meetings section of the AdAstra event request form. Be sure to include directions on how to register for the virtual session in the Event Details section whether that be through Zoom Event Registration or via email to the Event Organizer.

Room Request Procedures

1. Complete request at https://schedule.wagner.edu using steps below. All requests require 48 hour notice.
2. Await confirmation.
3. Follow up with Media Services, Central Services, Dining Services, Housekeeping, etc. for any other support related to event.

Note: Many campus locations are not managed via AdAstra. This includes the Sports Center, athletic fields, Residence Hall lounges, and department conference rooms. To request those spaces email the individual departments to determine availability and schedule.

If you wish to have your event published on the Wagner Calendar of Events site please pay special attention to the area highlighted in red in the image above.

Select the time of your event. If this is a single date use the first tab, if is a recurring date use the second tab, and if it spanning a 24-hour plus period of time use the third tab. Hit create. See image below Step 5.

Note: Meeting Time and Uploading Event to the Wagner Newsroom Calendar
If you are planning on listing your event on the Wagner Newsroom calendar it is best that your primary meeting reflects the actual start and end time of the event for which you are expecting attendance. For example, if your event is from 7pm – 9pm, your initial meeting time should reflect that time as well. If you anticipate needing time to set-up for your event or break-down afterwards then create separate meetings using the Meeting Type “Event Set-up” or “Event Break-down”. Meetings coded as set-up or break-down will not appear on the Newsroom calendar.
 

Select the meeting date you wish to assign a room for. Hit assign rooms.

Date Restrictions:
1. Events being requested with less than 48 hours notice will not be permitted by the system.
2. Event requests during a future semester can not be fulfilled until the credit schedule has been uploaded.
