Classroom Requests


Academic courses have priority booking in classroom space. Classrooms may also 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. You may submit your classroom requests directly on EMS using the classroom requests template. The direct booking period will be open until December 3, 2023.

See below for the process on how to book classrooms in these different periods.

Direct Bookings Periods

Indirect Booking Periods
mid September 2023 – 12/3/23 12/4/23 – mid February 2024
mid February 2024 – 4/28/24 4/29/24 – mid September 2024
mid September 2024 – 12/8/24 12/9/24 – mid February 2025

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, RRR/Finals week, and all of summer sessions. During this time, the EMS classroom template is closed to prioritize academic scheduling. Classrooms must be requested via the Classroom Request Form .

Before submitting a request through the Classroom Request Form, please review classroom availability on EMS (under Locations). If the classroom is available, a tentative reservation can placed. Tentative reservations will be confirmed 48 hours prior to the requested date (or once the direct booking period begins).

Direct Booking Period:

Once the academic schedule is settled, the direct booking period begins. Classroom requests must be submitted directly through EMS using the classroom request template. Requests submitted through EMS will be processed as soon as possible. Once processed, the requestor will be notified if the request has been confirmed or declined via email.

If you are unable to request a date in EMS, that date is likely outside of the direct booking period. Please see the indirect booking policy for how to submit your request.
