Computer Booking System Features

Automatic Booking Extensions
(Based on Availability)

If there are enough computers available after your time limit is reached, your session will be automatically extended.

Make a Scheduled Booking

Because of the automatic extensions, we recommend booking a computer station in advance, rather than depending on the availability of walk-up bookings.

Smart Booking Assignment

The system will automatically assign you a computer in the area you have selected. Booking specific computer stations is not supported.

Early Sign-On

The system will allow you to sign on early to an unused station you have booked.
