Resource Booker allows UMSU student clubs to book resources, including rooms, and equipment. It's integrated with the University's timetable to make teaching spaces available online for booking by UMSU student clubs.
Resource Booker access is only available to Clubs Executives who have lodged an @student.unimelb.edu.au email address with Clubs and Societies. Please get in touch with the UMSU Information Centre via email to email@example.com
If your club is affiliated with a University Department and not one of the student associations. In that case, you should approach your Department and staff in those departments should make the booking for your Student Club.
What if my club is not affiliated, or if I am not part of any club?
1 - Approach your teaching department to see if they are willing to make an internal booking on your behalf. There are generally no costs associated with internal departmental bookings during the day; or
2- Make an External Booking.: https://services.unimelb.edu.au/venuehire/external. Please note that there are costs associated with booking the venue as an external client.
Please use Resource booker to book the following:
o University outdoor grounds spaces
o University Shared Teaching Spaces
o Union House Rooms & North Court
