Booking A Room

Using the Online Booking System  

A number of centrally-managed meeting spaces can now be booked via the online booking system.

This means colleagues across University Services no longer need to submit a formal request to SMTT for these spaces, but can check availability and book directly themselves.

The rooms in scope of this new facility are:

  • Thomson/Main Building 132
  • Thomson/Main Building 134
  • Main Building 251
  • Main Building 350
  • Main Building 358

The online booking system is available at MyGlasgow for Staff > Timetables and Room Bookings > Booking

Rooms can be booked for meetings of up to 3 hour duration and up to 2 weeks in advance.

Making A New Booking

For members of staff and SRC affiliated student societies:

Requests for conference bookings, bookings from external parties or events open to the general public should be directed to Conferences and Events in the first instance.

Students wishing to book space for dissertation/project work should approach a supervising member of academic or administrative staff to approve and submit the request on their behalf.

Please try to give at least 48 hours notice for your room requests.  During busy periods last minute requests may not be seen in time.

Please note that the routine allocation of main teaching rooms is handled via your School/RI Timetabler and Timetabler change requests.

Checking Room Availability, Making an Enquiry, or Making an Amendment   

Room Availability – staff can view room availability from MyGlasgow for Staff by selecting "Timetables and Room Booking".

Queries about, or amendments to current non-teaching bookings should be sent to Timetabling quoting the event ID from your booking confirmation email.
