O365 - Student Academic Space Booking

Some specialized academic spaces are available for student booking via O365.

These are usually departmental controlled rooms designated for students participating in specific classes or studies.

If you are part of one of these student groups you will be informed by your professor.

Click Send to save your meeting/event and send the booking request. The room manager and the meeting/event requester will receive a notice the event is tentatively accepted, and will appear as tentatively book on room calendar if the time slot is available. This is the default until the event is approved or denied by the room managers, similarly to someone accepting or denying a meeting request.
