Classroom Requests


Academic courses have priority booking in classroom space, but classrooms may be reserved by Berkeley Haas students, staff, and faculty for activities and programs in accordance with existing university policies, campus regulations, and any Haas-specific restrictions.

There are two time periods that affect the method of placing classroom requests: the indirect booking and direct booking period. We are currently in the Direct Booking period. See below for process to book classroom in these different periods.

Direct Bookings Periods

Indirect Booking Periods
mid February 2023 – 4/30/23 5/1/23 – mid September 2023
mid September 2023 – 12/3/23 12/4/23 – mid February 2024
mid February 2024 – 4/28/24 4/29/24 – mid September 2024

Once a request has been processed, the requestor will be notified if the request has been confirmed or declined via email.

Please allow at least 2 work days to process your requests–requests with a shorter notice may not be accommodated. Weekend requests must be submitted by 10am the preceding Friday (or preceding work day for holidays).

Please email us if you have any questions at [email protected] Be sure to include the date and time of your request.

Indirect Booking Period:

The indirect period includes the first few weeks of the semester (add/drop), RRR and Finals week, and all of summer sessions. During this time, the EMS classroom template is closed in order to prioritize academic scheduling. Classrooms need to be requested via the Classroom Request Form (opens in a new tab).

Before submitting a request, please be sure to review classroom availability in EMS (under Locations). If the classroom is available, a tentative reservation will be placed. Reservations will be confirmed 48 hours prior to the requested date (or once the direct booking period begins).

Direct Booking Period:

Once the course schedule is settled, approximately when add/drop ends, the classroom template in EMS will be available for direct bookings until the beginning of RRR week. Requests with dates within this period will be processed as soon as possible and an email update will be sent to confirm or decline your classroom reservation.

For requests that are during RRR or Finals week, please refer to the Indirect Booking section above.
