Dispute over who is booked into a room

If you arrive at a room that you believe you have booked finding it already in use and can't get through to a member of the Timetabling Team, you can use the online timetables to confirm who actually has the room booked. Using the link on the Central Timetabling homepage 'Timetable Reports' and after signing in (using your IT log in), select Location from the list of report types. Select the room in question from the drop down list, scroll down the list of weeks until you find the relevant date, amend the 'Select time' option to be 09.00 - 22.00 and view timetable. This will then give you a timetable for the room and week in question, giving details of the bookings for that period.
