 Booking the TPC

The TPC may be booked for faculty meetings as well as for larger Education classes (not on an ongoing basis) e.g. two or three classes that need to meet together for a special guest presentation.

The TPC is a student-centred space and we want to have it accessible to students as often as possible.  Please be considerate of this when booking the Centre.

The TPC will occasionally be closed in the afternoon for Faculty of Council meetings as these meetings are private and the TPC is the only room we have that will accommodate the whole faculty plus guests.

Those who book the space should understand that it is a shared space, and students may continue to use the space to work quietly or access the library collection.  Please consider this when booking the TPC.

NOTE: Please do not leave your belongings unattended. The library staff are not responsible for watching your belongings if you leave the TPC for any reason.
