Years ago, a customized application called RoomRes was created to facilitate student advising appointments and reservations of several study spaces within the libraries. As the usage of RoomRes grew, the limitations of that solution became clear.
Last spring, a new easy-to-use web platform, booking.smu.edu, was introduced to improve advisor and student experiences. Advisors have more flexibility with scheduling, can require advance notice for bookings, and collect student data prior to their appointments. Students can navigate the system much more efficiently to select the best appointment time for them.
If you are an advisor and would like to take advantage of the new SMU Booking system at booking.smu.edu, please submit a request to email@example.com or contact the IT Help Desk at 214-768-HELP. For more information about using booking.smu.edu hosted by Libcal, please see the at smu.edu/OIT/Services/LibCal.
Students can learn more about the advising process and make an appointment at the registrar’s website.
Update Aug. 30, 2018: Added information about accessing booking.smu.edu.
