Book a Venue

Step one:

  • If you would like to book a teaching space, you can view the list of Central Teaching Spaces. This details the room type, capacity, available facilities, and pictures of the room layout so that you can locate the most suitable venue for your event.
  • There are a range of venues on campus, including:
    • Computer labs (PC or MAC)
    • Flat teaching spaces (tutorial/seminar) with movable furniture
    • Tiered lecture theatres with fixed furniture

Step two:

  • Fill in the Venue HIre Request Form with details of the booking. Once completed the form will be automatically submitted to the Venue Hire team and you will receive a confirmation email of your request. Please note the form submission email is not a confirmation of booking. The Venue Hire will send you a separate booking confirmation email.
  • If any further details are required from you, or the chosen room/date/timeslot are unavailable, the Venue Hire team will contact you via the email used to submit the form.
  • You may be required to fill in the Function on campus eForm before the actual event is approved to take place. Functions on Campus (FoC) is the application process for holding functions on University grounds and within University facilities. Review the FoC webpage to learn more.
  • The Venue Hire team will send through a booking confirmation once the booking has been entered into the system.
    • This email will contain a link and QR code for feedback. The form will ask two questions regarding your experience in using the form. The Venue Hire team welcomes all feedback particularly about the:
      • new digitalised Venue Hire Request Form,
      • booking process in general,
      • knowledge and service provided by the Venue Hire team, or
      • if the feedback does not concern the Venue Hire team but rather one of our service partners, we will pass on your feedback to deliver the best end-to-end service.

At the Division of Shared Services, we pride ourselves on always striving for continuous improvement, as well as our ability to adapt to client needs.

Your feedback could enact the next improvement in our service.
