To request a room you can use Web Room Bookings in the Timetabling channel in MyEd.
You can review or cancel a booking by going into Web Room Bookings and clicking on 'my bookings' at the bottom of the page. This will load up all your bookings and you can cancel the booking by clicking on the Cancel button.
There are no charges for cancelling a booking. Charges will only be applied if you cancel an out of hours booking within 2 working days of the booking (to cover the servitor who had been arranged for the booking).
External speakers are allowed as long as you adhere to the University of Edinburgh policy on speakers and events.
You are not allowed to bring your own food. If the room you have booked allows for catering you need to contact one of the University's approved caterers to supply the food. These are Edinburgh First or Honours Catering.
All teaching rooms are constrained during semester times to allow core teaching to be allocated first. The constraints for Semester 1 ad-hoc bookings are normally removed in early July, with Semester 2 being removed in the later part of Autumn. There are also some rooms that have priority booking periods outwith the semesters which will restrict booking requests being made.
There may have been some core teaching placed in the room after you made the request, or another user had requested the same room as you but had submitted their request before you.
How do I find out about who to contact about a local room?
Contacts for locally allocated rooms can be found here
