What are my booking limits? Two booking session quotas per day.  The minimum duration of a session is 30 minutes and the maximum is 120 minutes, counting from the 15th or 45th minute of each hour.

How far ahead can I book? Two library opening days in advance. 

How many persons are required to book a group study room/corner?  A group must have two members or more. One member of a group can make the booking on behalf of the whole group.

Can I renew a booking if the group study room/corner is available after the end of my session? Yes, as long as you have quota left.

How to check in?  All members of a group have to check-in in person at the Library Counter where the room/corner locates by presenting the booking confirmation email and their Student/Library Cards to the library staff.  The check-in can be done 15 minutes before the registered start time.

What if I didn’t show up after the registered start time?  Can I have the quota back?  If you did not show up 10 minutes after the registered start time, the booking will be forfeited and the room/corner will be released for others to book.   Your quota will be deducted accordingly.
