The Room Booking Policy establishes how to book a facility and the priority order in which activities are booked.
|Purpose||To describe how to book a facility and the priority order in which activities are booked.|
Every year, Property receives thousands of booking requests for a large variety of University and general public activities.
Property aims to book rooms in a fair and equitable way. Activities are therefore prioritised according to importance using a documented system in order to be consistent, transparent and as fair as possible in processing booking requests.
Casual Room Booking: ad-hoc activities (priority levels 5-11) that are booked after the class timetable is finalized.Hire: to pay for the use of a facility for a chargeable activity.
|This policy applies to:
Rooms are primarily provided to support University teaching activities.
Rooms are also provided for University administrative, student group and staff activities.
Rooms may also be available on weekends and session breaks to the general public for a limited range of activities.
Property will maintain a schedule of Activity Categories that shows the no charge and chargeable activities.
