College Bookable Rooms


Please note that due to COVID-19, the rules regarding bookings CBE rooms have changed. All bookings will require a written approval.

Bookings by non-CBE staff will only be considered by either a D3 (Dean or Director-level) delegate of the College. 

Note: bookings can be cancelled at any time in response to either a suspected COVID-19 case, or if the COVIDSafe Alert Level reaches “MEDIUM”. 


The following groups are eligible to book CBE rooms: 

  • CBE staff 
  • CBE research students 

To reduce the likelihood of local transmission, bookings by non-CBE staff will only be considered by a D3 delegate of the College (see table at end of page).  

Booking requests

Booking requests must include the following: 

  • A brief description of the activity (eg meeting, event, social gathering). 
  • Information on whether food/drink will be present 
  • Information on how many people are expected to attend 
  • Information on visitors (ie people who are not CBE staff or CBE research students). 

Approval and Conditions of Use 

  • Meetings of up to 10 staff members and research students will be permitted. Meetings larger than 10 people will require approval of a D3 delegate of the College for the space (see table at end of page). 
  • All bookings will require manual approval. Please allow at least four hours’ lead-time for meetings of 10 people or less. Requests requiring D3 delegate approval will usually take several days depending on delegate availability, and assuming the information provided with the request is sufficient.
  • Rooms are provided as-is and must be returned to original configuration before leaving. 
  • Any costs incurred (eg cleaning, removals, security) will be passed on to the event organiser. Professional cleaning is mandatory for catered events. 
  • Please include set up and pack up times in your booking request. 
  • Catered events and activities other than meetings may require approval through the Functions on Campus eForm (see eForm link for further information). Completing this process is the responsibility of the organiser and requires a risk assessment and COVID safe plan to be uploaded (contact for assistance).

Student club and society bookings 

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 student bookings will not be considered during Semester 2, 2021. 

Meeting and seminar rooms 

ANU staff can book most meeting and seminar rooms using an Outlook meeting request. See the manual for instructions. Please note automatic tentative acceptance is given as a placeholder and does not indicate approval. 

IT and Audio-Visual (AV) systems in meeting and seminar rooms are College owned and not supported by the University’s Information Technology Services (ITS) team. This means ITS will respond when workload permits and not as a priority. Please be aware of this risk when requesting these resources. 

Maintenance issues (heating/cooling, water, power, etc) should be reported to within business hours and ANU Security outside business hours.
