Reserve a Room
Via a calendar event
Reserving a Room in Google Calendars is easy! You can reserve many rooms on both the Hill and the River campus, including Laptop carts, computer labs, conference rooms, classroom resources, multipurpose rooms and theaters.
- Login to your RCS Google Calendar at http://calendar.riverdale.edu
- Create a new event by either clicking and dragging in the calendar or by clicking the large, red Create Event button on the left side of the calendar screen
- In the Create Event screen, check the time range on your event - if you have a 50 minute period, you may have to manually type your period's end time in the end time box.
- Please also check the repeating status of your event. If this event will be happening weekly, daily or biweekly, take advantage of the Repeat check box.
- Once you are sure your dates and times are correct, you can begin adding a room to your event. To do this, Click on the Rooms link on the right side of the Create Event page.
- To search for your room, you may either click on the campus you need and scroll through the available rooms, or you may use the search bar to search for the name of the room.
- Once you find the Room you want to book and it is available, click the Add link next to the Room name to add it to your event. Doing this should fill in the location field to your event as well.
The Room I'm Looking For Doesn't Show Up!
It's possible you have the Show only available check box checked. Uncheck the checkbox to see all rooms, even if they are not available.
The Room I Need is Busy - Who's Using it? When Will it be Free?
You can see the status of your room, as well as who has booked it by Adding the room to your event and then clicking the Find a Time Tab.
Via Room Wizards
Room Wizard reservations are available for reserving a free room immediately. See our Room Wizards instructions page to reserve a room with a room wizard.
Room Wizards connect with the room's reservation calendar... which means that your events in a room will automatically show up on the Room Wizard! Wowie!
