Centrally managed lecture room bookings now open in Booker for AY19/20

last modified Aug 29, 2019 03:19 PM
You can now use Booker, the University's new room-booking system, to book rooms that are centrally managed by the Student Registry and Estate Management for the 19/20 academic year.

You can now use Booker, the University's new room-booking system, to book rooms that are centrally managed by the Student Registry and Estate Management (such as the Babbage, Mill Lane and Lady Mitchell lecture theatres, the Sidgwick lecture block, and rooms in the Old Schools and 17 Mill Lane) for the 19/20 academic year. We've migrated all bookings already made via Micad to Booker, assigned them to Booker users' accounts (where possible) and removed any system locks that were in place.

If you don't already have a Booker account, please contact to request one. You can find tips on how to use the system in our Booker user guide. We recommend using browsers other than Internet Explorer, such as Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

Micad room booking to be retired on 31 December

Estate Management will be retiring the room booking module of Micad on Tuesday 31 December 2019. Institutions that are using this module will need to migrate to an alternative room booking system before this date.

Booker: the University's new room booking system

Booker is a user-friendly, quick and robust cloud-based service that has been designed for the University. It's a foundational element of the Education Space programme, chaired by Professor Graham Virgo. It's available to all institutions across the University of Cambridge, both academic and non-academic.

If you're interested in adopting the system for your institution, please contact  to arrange a demonstration and chat with our Service Manager about your requirements.
