Room Booking Service

Booker is a new room-booking system that has been designed for the University of Cambridge.

The benefits of Booker

Booker makes it easier for everyone to discover and access rooms, and also helps departments to manage their rooms more easily and efficiently.

Booker offers:

  • comprehensive information about each room, including photos
  • a simple, visual layout
  • easy searching by date, type of room, and location
  • customisable options for room managers.

The team that developed Booker conducted extensive research across the University into user needs and incorporated staff feedback at all stages of the design process.

Booker is available to all institutions across the University of Cambridge, both academic and non-academic. Institutions currently using the system include the Faculty of Law, Kettle's Yard and University Information Services (UIS). You can see a full list and map here. Feedback  received includes: "it looks good", "it's really easy to use", "it helps you to know more about the rooms than you did before."

Booker is part of the University's Education Space initiative.

A member of our team will contact you to arrange a site visit so that we can talk about your requirements, demonstrate the system and answer any questions that you may have.

We'll also complete a survey of the rooms that are to be added to the system, taking photographs and compiling a list of their characteristics and facilities.

We'll import all of the gathered information into a test environment for you and your users to try, so that you can familiarise yourself with the system.

We can then agree a date for making the system live, and arrange to import all existing bookings into the new system.
