Polite Reminder – University Meeting Rooms

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 4:05 am

As a polite reminder, can all meeting room users please ensure that University meeting rooms are booked via Event Essex prior to use and not used on an ad hoc basis. This is to avoid rooms being occupied when a user has booked in advance and is therefore unable to use the room.

Please email or call 8336 to book meeting rooms.
