What is Stamp eCalendar

Stamp eCalendar is a software program that enables our clients to request event spaces and other resources that are managed by the Stamp Student Union, virtually. eCalendar is available 24/7. https://ecalendar.umd.edu/

To use eCalendar, you must have an eCalendar account that is associated with either the student organization or the university department that you represent. When you submit a request form you will need to provide authorization from your student org president or department head.

How to Use STAMP eCalendar

About This Guide

This guide is designed to be a quick reference for common tasks in STAMP eCalendar. For more
details about how to make reservations, contact your Event Services Coordinator or the space
manager (Student Involvement Suite, TerpZone, Studio A, etc.).


Definitions

Reservation – The “Who and What.” This contains the employee booking information and what the booking is called. A reservation will always have at least one (1) booking/occurrence.
Booking – The “When and Where.” This contains the date, time, and location information for each occurrence of a reservation. A reservation must have at least one booking but can have as many bookings (think of a recurring meeting – each occurrence is a booking).
