Internal events or room bookings

Internal events are events related to Informatics, which are organised by a member of staff of the School of Informatics.

Bookings for events or room bookings related to Informatics and with less than 100 attendees must be made through the appropriate admin office and approved by the office supervisor.

Please check room availability and unmasked capacities on the booking system before submitting requests.  While there are no physical distancing requirements (as at March 2022) meetings and events should be arranged to allow for distancing for those that wish to maintain a distance. Information on pre-pandemic capacity and layouts can be found by visiting the link below.

External events

External events are all events that are not organised by a member of staff of the School of Informatics and/or events that not related to the work and activities of the School of Informatics.

Given the level of demand on our meeting rooms, external bookings need to be approved in advance by either HoS or Director of Professional Services. External events that have a connection with Informatics, or which are of strategic importance to the University, will be looked upon more favourably.

*Please read the Informatics events policy for full details.
