New Library Room Reservations System (07/03/2023)

We have a new Library Room Reservations system that allows you to reserve/book library rooms online. Room numbers have also changed (room nearest elevators is now Room 1 and the room in the middle of the large room is Room 2)

IMPORTANT:

When you arrive at the room in the library, you MUST check in or your reservation will be cancelled automatically. 

A new feature of this system is that you MUST CHECK IN to your room reservation booking or your reservation booking will be cancelled automatically.

To check in to your reserved room: scan the barcode on the door of the room and click on Check In, or click on the check in link in the confirmation email that you received, otherwise your reservation will be cancelled automatically. (To check in and/or to check out, you will need the check in code that is in the email that you received for the reservation booking)

This releases reservations in the event that the person who reserved it does not show up and check in.

You can also CHECK OUT of the reservation if you decide to leave the room before the end of your reserved time.

This allows the room to be released for others to reserve it.
