Room Reservation

How to request a Department Room Reservation

The system the PSTAT Department uses can be found here.

First time users should create an account in order to book PSTAT rooms by following the Create an Account link at the bottom of the page. Creating an account will require an email address.

After you have created and activated your account (via email), you will want to go to the Schedule tab and then to Bookings to reserve a room. There, you will find a weekly calendar with all of the available PSTAT rooms and available times.

To book, you can click on the box corresponding to the day, room and time that you would like; you may drag the cursor to select multiple hours at a time. You will then see a Create a new reservation page where you can adjust the starting/ending time or repeat options, as well as add a title and description of the event.

In order to ensure timely process of your reservation, please make sure to put in a title for your reservation. For example, the title could be "Office Hours" for TA or professor office hours, or "Study Group" for an exam study session. We ask that you do not put in your name as the reservation title.

You will then click the create button on the right-hand side of the page and your request will be processed by the department. You will receive an email when your reservation request has been approved or denied. You may edit your reservation by navigating to your reservation in the calendar (again, under Schedule, then Bookings), selecting your event, and editing as needed. To cancel the reservation, please navigate to your event and hit Delete on the bottom left of the reservation page.

Please note that only faculty and instructors may book Sobel Seminar for Office Hours. For use of Chair's Conference Room please consult with the Department Chair first. 

How to request a General Assignment Room Reservation

The Ad Astra system UCSB uses for general assignment classroom spaces and computer labs can be found here.

The Ad Astra system will require you to log in using your netid and password. Once logged in, you can view current room bookings under "Calendar" > "Scheduling Grids" on the top left of the page. It will automatically show you the bookings for the current day, but you can change it to week view at the top left. If you would like to see the room bookings for computer labs, you can filter the room type to "Collaborate" on the top right of the page. 

If you would like to book a one-time room request, you can submit a request here. Please note that room requests will need to be submitted at least one week in advance. Most requests you submit will be an "Academic Department One-Time Room Request". If you would like assistance booking a room, please contact the Undergraduate Advisor. 

If your request is approved, you will receive the booking confirmation via email. 

Please note that only faculty and instructors may book rooms using the request form above
