Terms and Conditions of Room Usage

When using a Centrally Timetabled Room (CTTR), all users are understood to have agreed to adhere to the following Terms and Conditions of Room Use. Failure to comply with these Terms and Conditions may result in the University revoking permission to use CTTRs.

CTTR Booking Process

  1. CTTR bookings may be made only by current students or staff at the University of Warwick.
  2. All ad hoc CTTR bookings¹ must be submitted via the online Web Room Bookings System (departmental staff – see this page for details of booking your own local space via this same online system). A copy of the booking reference/email must be taken to the room during use and produced when requested to do so to assist Security personnel when conducting room checks. Users may be prevented from using a CTTR or may be required to vacate a CTTR if they cannot show a valid booking confirmation . Users of rooms shall comply with all reasonable requests of the Security Team.
  3. If we are unable to proceed with the request due to inadequate information, the booking may be cancelled without notifying the user. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to email users to obtain any essential information missing from the booking forms. All forms submitted by students MUST give the society name where applicable and the specific reason for the request.
  4. If additional information has been requested and a booking is still pending after 3 working days (i.e. awaiting the additional information from the user), that booking will be cancelled.
  5. We reserve the right to transfer your booking to a comparable room by giving you at least 1 working day’s notice.
  6. A CTTR booking may be cancelled by the University:

a. at any time if it is considered that there is a risk to safety or a risk of a relevant breach of these Terms and Conditions, ; or

b. for any reason by giving one weeks’ notice.

Responsibilities

  1. The individual against whom the booking is made will be held responsible for the state of any booked CTTR regardless of whether the room was used by the individual or not. If rooms are no longer required the booking should be cancelled, otherwise the individual retains responsibility for that time slot in that room.
  1. Users will be charged the reasonable cost of repairing any damage caused to the booked CTTR or to any facilities within it as a result of a breach of these Terms and Conditions, and must notify Central Timetabling of any damage caused immediately.
  1. These Terms and Conditions can be modified by the University at any time and any such modified Terms and Conditions shall become effective for bookings made on or after the date on which the changes are made.

¹The online booking system is to be used purely for ad hoc bookings only and not for amendments to the teaching timetable. Any bookings made via the online booking system will not be carried over to the next academic year’s timetable and will be deleted. All amendments to the teaching timetable must be requested by email/telephone to the Central Timetabling Office and not via the online booking system. The only exception to this policy is for local room bookings. Users with privileges to book their local rooms via the online booking system can add ad hoc bookings directly into their local space. It is their responsibility to inform the central timetabling team as to whether these events should be 'rolled over' or deleted when construction begins on the next academic year's timetable.
