Conference Room Reservations

Please keep these guidelines in mind when booking and using rooms:

  • To book a room, register at In the top left corner, click ‘Book a room'.
  • Book your meeting (make sure it's under the correct date, room and time please)
  • Please use meeting spaces for meetings only and not as a general workspace, as it takes away from other members' ability to use the space for meeting and presentation purposes.
