Finalize Reservation Details

The Reservation Details screen finalizes information about your reservation. 

1. Enter the Event Name as the title of the event.

2. Choose the Event Type.

3. Fill in your department or organization. If the group is not already listed in your available or drop-down list, click the magnifying glass to the right of that field and type in the group you wish to reserve for. Once that group appears, click the green + sign on the left and the group will be in your drop down for all future reservations. You must repeat this action for each new group or organization you wish to reserve for.

4. If your group does not exist, you make your reservation as “New Group” and then let us know what the name of the group is in order to be created.

5. If you are creating a reservation for an individual request that has nothing to do with a group or organization, you should use “Student” as your group.

6. The contact should be who the reservation is for or who is responsible for the event. If you are making the reservation for someone else, you would list them as the first contact and you as the second contact. If names are not listed with the group you are reserving for, list them as “temporary” as they will be added to that group.

7. Event description is where you will clarify what the event is about, for etc. (especially if a public event).

The Status of Your Requests

Once a space is requested through the Web App, the request is considered as an “inquiry” until confirmed or denied by the Conferences and Events Office.  
After you submit your space request, you will receive an email that indicates that your space request has been successfully submitted.

Conferences and Events tries to confirm all space requests within a 24 hour period. Once approved, you will receive an email confirmation confirming the space or an email letting you know if there is a problem or the request needs clarification.

Once the event has been “approved” by the C/E Office, the only way to make a change or alter the reservation is to contact roomres@brynmawr.edu.
