Scout Manager and space access

UW Groups are used to control access to Scout Manager and manage spaces. To request access to Scout Manager, please send a request to with the following information:

  • Subject: Scout Manager Access Request
  • Body:
    • UW Group name1
    • Space details2
      • Name of the space
      • Category of space (Study, Food, Tech)
      • Campus
      • Location of the space
    • Space manager contact information
      • First and Last Name
      • Email address

Once access is granted, you will need to log into Scout Manager and edit the space that was set up per the access request. Please see the Editing a space in Scout Manager[link] guide for more information.

1The UW Group will be used to manage access to Scout Manager and the space(s) entered in the system. Anyone who is a member of this UW Group will also have access to Scout Manager. We strongly recommend that you create a UW Group that is specifically for managing spaces in Scout Manager and add only those individuals to the membership who would manage spaces.

2If you plan to manage an existing space, please provide the space name and the previous contact information of the space.

Additional information

Each space may only have one group assigned to it; however, different spaces that you have access to can use different UW Groups. Make sure that the UW Group you assign to the space is one that you have access to or you will lose access to that space in Scout Manager.
