Important Reservation Policies

Reservation lead time:

  • Same-day reservations of the labs are possible up to 2 hours ahead of the start time.

  • All reservations can be made up to 120 days ahead of time: instructors are able to plan ahead their lab reservations for the entire semester.

In order to ensure fair sharing of the lab resources, we have the following lab use policies:
  • Minimum occupancy level: Lab reservations must maintain an average of 1/3 occupancy level. The occupancy level is defined against the lab seat capacity (20 total seats in the Mac lab and 28 in the PC lab).
  • Daily maximum: (same-day reservations exempted)
    • 3 hours per CLASS section
    • 6 hours per RESEARCH project
  • Term maximum: (same-day reservations exempted)
    • 24 hours for CLASS section
    • 48 hours for RESEARCH project
  • Biweekly maximum: (effective up to 7 days prior)
    • 4 hours per 2-week interval for CLASS (8 for summer classes)
    • 16 hours per 2-week interval for RESEARCH
  • Maximum consecutive weekly reservation of the same time slot (ex. Mon 1-1:50pm): (effective up to 7 days prior)
    • 2 consecutive weeks
In addition, we have a set of policies regarding research projects. Please read them here.
