Space Managers are the heart of the room approval process and help the university effectively manage space on campus. Space Managers are responsible for processing requests for spaces they manage (typically within one business day). They are also responsible for reporting both maintenance and room feature changes to their department’s Power User.

Mac Users: First request access and then install AWS Workspaces, which is a Windows-based cloud desktop. After those steps are complete, sign in and continue the steps below while in AWS Workspaces.

  1. Click the link (WFU log in required) on the EMS Desktop Client Installation Page. You will be prompted to save two files (EMSApplication.exe and emswebdeployconfiguration.cfg). Save both files in the same location (e.g., your Desktop).

  2. Double-click the EMS Client Installer (EMSApplication.exe).
