Scheduling: Ad Astra

Checking Classroom Schedules

The JSoM will be using a new way to check room schedules. Public Folders in Outlook will no longer work. You can now view the room schedules using this link which will take you to the Ad Astra main page.

NOTE: To access Ad Astra from off campus, you must connect to IU's VPN first. For information on setting up and connecting to IU's VPN, visit

From the Ad Astra main page:

  • Click the 'Calendars' tab
  • Click 'Scheduling Grids'
  • On the right-hand side click the arrow next to 'Choose Calendar' and select BL JSOM Public
  • You should now see a list of all our available classrooms. You can further filter the list by clicking the arrow next to 'Filter' to browse by building.
