How Do I Book a Room?
Log onto the room booking web page using your normal username and password.
The default view shows you which rooms are available for the next half hour. You can change the date and time if you want to book a room further ahead.
To see more information about a specific room, select the information icon.
To make a booking, select the button and select how long you need the room for. Unless there are other bookings, you can usually make a booking for 30 minutes, 1 hour, 90 minutes or 2 hours.
Once you select the "Confirm" button to place the booking, you should receive an email with booking details.
You can also view room availability by selecting a specific type of room from the drop down menu.
You will then see the availability of the relevant rooms throughout the entire day.
To place a booking, select a free slot and the booking length, and then click "Confirm".
How Many Bookings Can I Make?
To give everyone a fair chance to book a room, the following restrictions are currently in place:
- you can make 1 booking per day
- you may make up to a total of 3 bookings in a single week
- bookings can usually be made up to 2 weeks in advance
How Can I View My Bookings?
The web site will tell you how many upcoming bookings you currently have. Simply select the button to view further details of each booking.
When you view the booking details, you can also change the booking length or you can cancel the booking.
How Can I Cancel a Booking?
Since you can only make a limited number of bookings each week, you should always remember to cancel a booking if you no longer require it. This also frees up the room so that someone else can use it.
To cancel an upcoming booking, simply view your current bookings and select the one you want to cancel, and then select the "cancel this booking" button. You will then receive an email to confirm that the booking has been cancelled.
