To make an ad-hoc room booking request, head to the Web Room Bookings portal. Guidance on how to use the room bookings system can be found here.
On the Web Room Bookings Portal, select "my bookings" at the bottom. Here you can view your active bookings and cancel them if necessary. If you wish to cancel one part of a multiple booking, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have speaker(s) or invited guests coming to your event that are not currently studying or working at Warwick University, the external speaker form needs to be completed and emailed to email@example.com. Please also indicate that there will be an external speaker on the booking form. The form can be found here
To access timetables for individual rooms (and more), head to the Timetable Reports page.
A list of centrally-timetabled rooms can be found here.
For an alternative view of the facilities in our rooms you can view this page, controlled by IT Services. On this helpful site you can search for rooms by location, capacity and facilities. This will show you a description of the facilities along with a picture of what the room looks like.
Booking requests made outside of office hours will be processed when we return, in order of receipt. We also ask that you give one clear working day's notice for ad-hoc requests. Your request may also be pending more information from you before it can be confirmed, in which case you should have received an email from us. If you have a query regarding your booking contact firstname.lastname@example.org or in urgent cases call
02476 524424 or 02476 151203.
We allocate rooms on a first come, first served basis with no bias towards teaching events or others. The system shows rooms that are yet to be allocated but they may already have several requests on them. This is particularly the case on evenings and weekends, so it is best to make your requests during normal working hours. We always try to relocate your booking to a room similar to your request where possible.
Alternatively, we may have moved your booking because the room you requested is not suitable for your use. Examples include small groups in large rooms, and performance-related bookings in inappropriate rooms (see more below). If you require a specific room for a particular reason then include this information in the "other information" box on the booking form.
See above. We try to relocate you on the same campus if at all possible, but if there are no suitable alternatives we may have to move your booking further afield.
The majority of our rooms have been deemed unsuitable for performance-related bookings. This may be due to location, layout or for other reasons. You can instruct the online system to show only performance rooms by selecting the "Performance Room" suitability on the first page of the booking form. The rooms are:
B2.01, B2.02, B2.03, B2.04/5 (Science Concourse)
GLT3 (Gibbet Hill)
Westwood Avon Drama Hall, Westwood Dance Studio, W.MUSIC1, W.MUSIC2 and W.MUSIC3 (Westwood Music rooms)
If you request an unsuitable room for a performance booking you will be relocated. Please ensure that you return furniture to a normal teaching layout when you finish.
Please do not hide your purpose and hold performance rehearsals in unsuitable rooms. We will find out and your society's booking privileges may be restricted or removed altogether.
Outside of term time, many of the rooms we usually look after become the responsibility of Warwick Conferences. A list of rooms we control during vacations can be found here.
If it turns out that none of our rooms are free or suitable for what you need, all is not lost. We have a list of alternative venues that may provide you with a solution.
We ask that you include some details of your intended use of the room so that we can be sure that we find you the most appropriate space. We also require the name of your society/group if applicable. If you do not include any information, or if this is too vague, we will be in touch asking for more. Bear in mind that during this time the room you have requested may still be booked by somebody else so it's in your best interests to be as clear as you can from the beginning.
Anything included in the "Meaningful Reference" box will show up on the timetable reports. If you don't want the information you communicate to us to be displayed publicly then ensure it is contained within the "Other information" box.
For AV (audio visual, i.e. electronic equipment) enquiries, contact email@example.com or visit http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/its/servicessupport/av.
No, any room booked through Central Timetabling will incur no cost. We will only charge a fee if you have caused damage to a room that requires maintenance.
Our terms and conditions can be found here. Failure to adhere to these may result in the restriction or removal of you and your society's booking privileges in future.
As per the above terms and conditions, it is not permitted to bring food and drink into centrally-timetabled rooms.
It is impossible for a room to be booked twice - the system doesn't allow this to happen. In most cases, one of the parties has not checked their confirmation email closely enough. Requesting a room is no guarantee of booking. Please check your confirmation email thoroughly and bring it with you to every room you have booked. In cases where two people think they have booked the same room, you can check the room timetables online or if during office hours, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02476 524424 or 02476 151203 and we will try to clarify the situation.
For local room booking questions, view this page.
We operate on the academic week system. If you are unsure as to how this relates to term weeks, see this page.
Your first point of contact for room problems should be email@example.com. If there is a problem with electronic equipment, please also inform AV services (firstname.lastname@example.org). If the room is locked when you arrive, contact security on (024765) 22083 or find the relevant porter. See here for more details.
If you cannot access either the Web Room Bookings or Timetable Reports system please email to let us know, including a description of the problem you are encountering. We will then try to restore the system to functionality while dealing with your room booking enquiry if applicable.
Module registration isn't handled by the central timetabling team. See here for more information.
