Colleagues can use the university’s online room booking resource service to book spaces for ad-hoc meetings and other activities. The system enables you to view the availablity of rooms, request your preferred rooms and make the booking electronically. Currently only general purpose teaching rooms (GPT) and centrally managed meeting rooms can be booked via this service. Rooms should only be booked for events aimed at USW students or for internal staff meetings. For all other events please contact Events.
Specialist teaching rooms are not bookable via this service, permission needs to be sought from the room owner e.g. Richard Summers for all Atrium rooms, or Head of School. Please send approval to Central Room Bookings (CRB).
Teaching should not be booked via this service, (e.g. anything that relates to a specific module code or you wish to appear on the student timetables) please contact Timetabling.
If you are booking an external speaker you must comply with the External Speaker Policy and complete the appropriate form.
It is recommended you search by campus and the room type Meeting/Teaching Rooms e.g. Atrium Meeting/Teaching Rooms or Glyntaff Computer Lab. For the Treforest and Glyntaff campus, you can limit your search to a building by selecting the Meeting/Teaching room option then holding down the CTRL key and selecting your preferred building. Please read the room descriptions carefully as this provides more detail about a room, e.g. Tiered/Fixed seating. If there is no description other than GPT, the room will be flat with moveable furniture.
The timetabling database runs from mid July to mid July, ad-hoc bookings can only be made once the teaching timetable has been completed.
NB Please do not use a room if you have not officially booked it. If you have booked a room and you no longer require it, please cancel it via the online Booking Service/My Bookings.
The online room request service is to be only used by staff to request rooms for ad-hoc meetings. Teaching requests should be sent to Timetabling, this includes in-class tests, presentations, changes to day/time or room.
In the simplest terms, teaching has a module code. This is something that you wish to appear on your student timetables. 1-1 sessions with students or re-sit tests are generally not considered as a teaching request.
If you are unsure if your booking relates to teaching please view Teaching V’s Ad-hoc (PDF 24KB)
CRB/Timetabling reserves the right to refer back any such bookings it believes to be teaching related.
