Booking Study Rooms: Fort Garry Campus

There are two ways to book a study room at the Dafoe, Science, Engineering, Agriculture, Management and Music Libraries on the Fort Garry Campus.

 

Option 1: Book a room in person

If you are standing in front of an unoccupied study room, you can book it right away using your student card. Simply swipe the card in the reader, and the door to the room will be unlocked for you.

 

Option 2: Book a room online

You can also book a study room in advance by using the University of Manitoba Libraries website. From the Libraries homepage, umanitoba.ca/libraries, click on "Find Study Space" to get started.

1. Under the “Book Rooms Online” section, click the link under “Fort Garry Study Rooms” to begin making your room booking.

2. Enter your UMnetID and password and click the Login button.

Click on the down arrow to select the library where the room you wish to book is located.

Enter the date you wish to book in year-month-day format in the date box, or simply click on the date box to open a calendar to select a date within the next two weeks. Then click the “Book for Selected Date” button to continue.

3. You will see a schedule grid for each of the study rooms available in the library you chose, broken down into half hour time slots. Some libraries have more than one study room, so please make sure you choose the correct study room.

If the time slot says “Occupied”, “Booked”, or “Closed”, then that time slot is unavailable.

If a slot is empty, you can click on it to select it. It will then say “Selected”.

Keep clicking half hour time slots to book all the times you need. You will only be able to book two hours total at one time.

Once you have selected all your time slots, scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click the “Confirm booking(s)” button.

4. You will receive a green message box telling you when and where you have made a room booking, along with a four-digit PIN number. Please write down this PIN number, as you will need it to open your study room! You will also get an email to confirm the booking.

5. When the time comes for you to enter the study room you booked in advance, simply swipe your student card and enter your four-digit PIN when prompted. The door to the study room will then be automatically unlocked for you.
