NEW Policy for use of College Vehicles for Vaccination appointments

If you are a Skidmore student and need to request a vehicle for a COVID-19 vaccination appointment, you can request vehicles using EMS. You will need to attach proof of your vaccination appointment in EMS on Step 2 under “Reservation Details”. You also need to be a registered driver with the college. If you have questions or need help please contact

vehicle policies


All of your event set up needs (tables, chairs, etc.) are available for requesting through EMS at the time you request your other services.   If you would like a personal training session on this process we’d be glad to schedule a one-on-one session. Email  for more information. Please find instructions for requesting Event Setup here.

Please review these event setup request policies before submitting EMS requests.

Here's a general overview of EMS. A more detailed How To Use EMS Guide is also available to walk you through step-by-step.

Training sessions to learn about EMS will be offered for beginners and frequent users throughout the semester as needed. We recommend attending the most appropriate level session to suit your needs. The pace of the beginner's session will be much slower and more comprehensive. You'll find the schedule of training sessions here.

Hands-on, one-on-one training sessions are also available. To schedule a session, please contact the Scheduling Office at
