Estates Services Room Booking

Resource booker

Resource Booker is now open for non-teaching bookings in central pool teaching rooms. You can log in using your university email address and password.

Resource Booker is an online tool where staff and postgraduate research students can book rooms and resources across campus.

To see how resource Booker works there is a short video, 'Resource Booker Book a Room Demo', and a Resource Booker User Guide (pdf).

Using the Resource Booker (staff)

You will see at least 3 booking tiles under "Make a Booking for Central Pool Teaching Rooms" when you log in: 

  • Central Pool Rooms (Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm) for weekday bookings
  • Collins Meeting Rooms to request a meeting room in the Collins building
  • Central Pool Rooms Out of Hours to request a room in the evening or weekend

Resource Booker should not be used to book teaching activities, as they will not appear on module or personalised timetables. Please contact your Departmental Timetable Coordinator (DTC) for advice.

Timetabled teaching takes priority. We can only open bookings in central pool teaching rooms 9am to 5pm during teaching weeks once timetables are confirmed. In semester 2 any rooms not allocated for teaching (in the core timetabling system) will be released for booking within Resource Booker after the timetable has been finalised.

You can find out more information about the rooms on campus, including photos, on the room facilities search or under Room Details in Resource Booker.

More information about making room bookings can be found on the Internal Room Bookings page.
