What type of activity are you booking a room for?

Information on these pages is categorised according to the 'type' of activity you are trying to book a room for, rather than the 'type' of room e.g. lecture theatre. Please refer to the list of acceptable uses of College space if you are not sure if your activity is suitable or not. 

Finding a suitable room to book

  • The College Room Finder contains a list of all bookable rooms across all campuses.  You can enter search criteria and it will return a list of rooms that match.  You can click on a room to display more details including the AV equipment, pictures in some cases, and how to book. 
  • Outlook, Planon and CELCAT Room Booker all have search facilities that help you to find suitable rooms that are bookable by those tools.  See the relevant instructions for details.
