College Bookable rooms


ANU staff and ANU students are eligible to book CBE rooms.

Student bookings will only be considered:

  • From the President or Vice-President of an ANUSA/PARSA endorsed club or society.
  • Within the normal opening hours of the building (see tables below).

Our facilities are not available for booking by external organisations or members of public. Requests relating to ANU co-hosted events must be submitted by the hosting ANU area.


Approval and Timeframes

Please see below table for indicative approval timeframes.

Bookings by students and non-CBE staff require manual approval. Please note:

  • Approval to use CBE bookable resources is contingent on CBE operational needs and is not guaranteed.
  • Bookings may require stakeholder consultation and other processes before they can be accepted. Timeframes depend on stakeholder/delegate availability. This usually applies to requests which involve catering, alcohol, multiple rooms, multiple days or busy periods such as O-week. CBE Infrastructure is not resourced to process such requests at short notice - please contact as early as possible.
  • Rooms are provided as-is. CBE Infrastructure is unable to provide logistical support (set up/pack up).

Please include set up and pack up times in your booking request. The room must be clean and furniture returned to original configuration before the end of your booked time.

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.

Approval of most spaces is automatic for CBE staff.

IT and AV systems in meeting and seminar rooms are College owned and not supported by ITS. This means ITS will respond when workload permits and not as a priority. Please be aware of this risk when requesting these resources.
