Booking guidelines

When booking, the following guidelines apply:

  • You can make bookings from any computer at Holmesglen, from your office or home.
  • Bookings may be made up to 7 days in advance, for a maximum of 2 hours per session. You can make up to 2 bookings in total, and these can be consecutive.
  • Your booking will be cancelled if you are more than 15 minutes late.
  • You can delete a booking before your session.
  • You cannot make a booking on behalf of another person.
  • Booking screens are updated every 90 seconds as new bookings are added.
  • You can 'walk up' to a PC and use it without booking it, provided the computer hasn't been booked for someone else or they are more than 15 minutes late.
  • You will receive 3 warnings at 10, 5 and 3 minutes before your session ends. The PC will log out at the end of your session.
  • You must save your work before the session ends. Use your own USB stick or cloud storage (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive or One Drive) to save your files.
  • If you leave your computer unattended for 15 minutes or do not press a key during that time, the PC will log you off automatically and you will lose your booking (e.g. if you go to the printer and take longer than 15 minutes).
  • Computers in the group discussion rooms cannot be booked.
  • If a student is sitting at a computer you have booked, tell them politely that you have booked the PC. If you have difficulty asking the student to move, our staff will be happy to assist you.
