Learn How to Use the New Room Reservation Interface

Consult the instructions below to learn how to use the new Study Room Reservation interface.

Search by Time or Room

The new reservation interface allows you to search for a study room by a specific time or room number. If you know when you want to reserve a room, select the time you need and search for all available rooms. If you have a favorite study room, you can also search by the room number and see the availability grid to select a time to reserve it.
