To request the use of a room, you will need to create an event on your WiscMail calendar and reserve the room as part of that event. To reserve a room:

  1. Log into WiscMail with your UW NetID and password
  2. Click "Calendar" in the bottom left corner
  3. Click "New Event" near the top of the page under the Calendar tab
  4. Enter title, date and time of your event
  5. Type "NIES [room number] Science Hall", e.g., NIES 15 Science Hall, in the "Reservations" search box and click on the desired search result to select it
  6. Click "Check Availability"; if the room is already reserved it will display as red and you'll need to adjust your event's date and time to resolve the conflict; click "Accept"
  7. Click "Save" near the top of the page
  8. You will receive an email when your request has been reviewed
