Reservations are made in half hour time slots and students may not book more than 3 consecutive slots. Students may not sign-up for more than 6 time slots (3 hours) of use per week.
The schedule is available for sign up twice a week. Every Monday the schedule will open at 9:30 am for sign up for Tuesday – Thursday. Every Thursday the schedule will open for Friday – Monday. This will continue every week throughout the semester.
