Ad-Hoc Room Bookings

In order to submit a room booking for a one off event, you will need to provide the following details:

  • Activity Description - This should be the same as activity title listed in your activity registration to prevent delays.
  • Actvitiy Type and Expected Attendees - With this information we can ensure you're booking the appropriate space.
  • Building/Room Preference 1 - This is your first preference of room. Please note, if multiple rooms are required, multiple requests will be required.
  • Building/Room Preference 2 - Please specify your second preference of room.
  • SDT - Start date and time of your booking
  • EDT - End date and time of your booking
  • If external speakers will be attending. If so, see our training.

When you have submitted a request for a space you will receive an email receipt including a room booking ID, this ID should be quoted in all future correspondence about the specific request to avoid confusion.

Never use a space before you receive a final confirmation that you have been authorised to use it from the Student Oportunities and Development team. If you do so, you may jeopardize your ability to book spaces in the future. 

If you require a room booking on a regular basis, please see our guidance for recurring bookings.

Activity Registration 
All Ad-Hoc Room Bookings are cross referenced against your activity registration submissions. If your activity is not yet fully approved, your room booking will be rejected.
Time Zone Differences
