How do I reserve a DOP Center Room or 540 A/B Cory?
Christopher Brooks, 18 Feb 2010
Last updated: 5 Sep 2017

Note: Starting in February, 2013, to reserve 540A/B, you must use bCal. See Cory and Soda Hall Room Reservations.
540A/B is managed by the EECS Department, not by the DOP Center.

For 529 (The library), 540R (The "video conference room") and 540X (The forum), see below.

We use the dopcenter workgroup calendar to schedule 529, 540R and 540X. To edit the calendar, you must be a member of the dopcenter workgroup. Membership in the dopcenter workgroup is open to faculty and staff. Students should use the faculty list to find the name of a staff person associated with their faculty and have the staff person request an account.

529, 540R and 540X Room Reservation Procedure

To reserve 540A/B, see above. To reserve 529, 540R and 540X, see below.

  1. Request membership in the dopcenter workgroup.
    If you do not sit at a desk in the DOP center, then select guest and you will not be added to the DOP Center email list.
      (Note to admins: if someone want to make a reservation, they will need to be a full dopcenter member. The workaround is to upgrade new members to full membership and then remove them from the mailing list by hand)
  2. Go to the DOP Center Calendar and add a reservation by clicking on the number of the day in which you would like to reserve the room.
    • If the room is already reserved for that day and time, it is up to you to resolve the scheduling conflict according to the policy below. In general, reviews have priority over workshops, workshops have priority over seminars and seminars have priority over classes.
    • Your reservation should include the name of the faculty sponsor, the event and the room number. For example
      Prof. Ptolemy. EECS Office Hours, 529 Cory
      The reason to include the room number is to make it clear what room is being reserved. The calendar is used to reserve more than just one room.
    • Note that there is a bug that prevents certain characters in the title from being displayed. Characters such as parenthesis ( and ) will be translated into their HTML codes. The workaround is to stick to alphanumerics, commas and dashes. Sorry!
    • If you do a repeating reservation, please only repeat your reservation for one semester. Also, please check for conflicts when you place a repeating reservation - conflicts are not automatically detected.
