As of the 14th September 2020, there are spaces available to book in the Main and Veterinary libraries. For other study spaces; please refer to the complete list of study spaces above for an estimate of when other areas can be expected to open.

If there are no rooms showing there are no rooms free at your required day and time. If you change your start and end times this may bring back results. There are also times when your booking will be outwith a building's opening hours so no results will appear. Contact Timetabling and Examinations services and we will advise on charges that would apply.

To book a room as a Student Group you need to complete the Student Groups Booking Form which can be accessed in the Timetabling channel in MyEd
You should normally hear back about a Student Group booking request within 2 working days. At some times in the year this reponse time may be longer.
If you are a non EUSA/EUSU society you can ask a member of staff in your School to place a booking on your behalf. The staff member who books the room will be responsible 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.
Bookings can be made from the August before the Academic year. If your booking is for a theatrical performance we require at least 7 working days notice. For a booking with an external speaker we require 10 working days notice.
