Events and Calendar Help

The University of Miami is a busy place with a large and diverse quantity of activities every day. University events take place not just at our incredible venues and campuses, but also online and all over the world, and the Master Calendar is the central website to discover it all. Not only is the Master Calendar a great tool for finding things to do, but it also makes it easy for you to share your own group's events with the rest of the 'Canes Community. Whether you're a student looking to get involved, a sports fan ready to cheer on the Hurricanes, or a faculty/staff member wanting to get the word out about your event, we've got you covered.

This website presents as many of the events that we can share in one place. The University uses Event and Conference Management Software to submit events and reserve space.

You'll find that each calendar page on this site also leads to the major sites for UM's colleges, schools, and administrative areas. If you don't find a specific event, try browsing to an area's website for more event information.

How do I submit an event to the calendar?

Events on the calendar are submitted  While the majority of events are automatically pulled from automated feeds, there may be an event that is missed. Events can be submitted to the calendar using the online submission form. Enter as much information as you can and click ‘Submit an Event.’ You can always make changes to any events you add. Event Name, description, and date are required, however, the more information you enter, the better your event page will be. After you submit your event, via EMS. Once a submission is completed, it gets approved and can appear on our calendars.

If you are not a University student, faculty, or staff member and are interested in reserving or renting a space, you can still use EMS to search for space that can be reserved or rented for private events. You can also contact the Office of Conference Services for more assistance.

To ensure maximum exposure for event listings, please submit the listing at least two weeks ahead of the event date. This allows time for review and posting.

*If your department needs an internal calendar, please email ecms@miami.edu for possible solutions.

Location-Based

You can easily view all upcoming events at a particular location. "Follow" the place and never miss an event. Each event on the Master Calendar has an embedded Google Map to give you access to directions.

Powerful Search

The search box can help users find events, places, people, and departments/groups. The UM Master Calendar uses filters to help users find exactly what events they are interested in.

Calendar Widgets

Put your department or group calendar on any website. The UM Master Calendar uses a simple widget builder to customize the type and style you want and allows you to copy/paste a script. For help with widgets email webmaster@miami.edu.

Guidelines

The Master Calendar is for events organized, hosted, sponsored or cosponsored by the University of Miami units, departments, colleges, schools, centers and institutes, alumni organizations, and official registered student organizations.

Who Can Submit Events?

Events are automatically fed into the Master Calendar using integrations to EMS, Engage, and 25Live. However, should an event not be published on the Master Calendar, University of Miami faculty, staff, and students can log in with their CaneID and password to submit events.

All calendar event listings are visible publicly, without the need to create an account or sign in. Users only need an account if they wish to contribute to the calendar.

What if I find a listing that is incorrect or incomplete?

Check the "Contact" information on the event. Most events will provide a means of contacting the person responsible for the event directly, once they know about the incorrect information, they can correct the listing online. For more assistance, contact the Office of Conference Services.

What is "ECMS"?

ECMS is the Events and Conference Management Software suite used to manage reservations and event listings at the University of Miami. Our system pulls information from that service to create our calendar lists and pages.

What is the difference between the "events.miami.edu" website and the "Master Calendar"?

You may notice links to something called "Master Calendar." Master Calendar is powered by Localist, a content management system that aggregates University events. 

What happened to the "'Canes Calendar"?

The 'Canes Calendar was a name we gave to our old University Web calendar. It has been replaced by this website. Sometimes people call this website the 'Canes Calendar out of habit.
