Room/Equipment Bookings

Seminar Room

Graduate students are welcome to book Seminar Room 12-252 for department-related activities. To book the room, please e-mail Irene Wandili and allow five working days for processing. Prior to booking, please check the room availability

This space is allocated on a first-come, first served basis, but priority is given to faculty and administrative events. If you are booking room for an SJE student-sponsored event, please make your room booking via the Academic and Campus Events website.

To ensure all SJE members have equal access to Room 12-252, we cannot reserve the SJE Seminar Room for continuous meetings for a term or year at a time. Scheduling up to 3 weeks ahead is an acceptable timeframe for continuous meetings.

The SJE Lounge (8-10 people) and the North West End (6-8 people) are public, open spaces in the department that are available for smaller informal events. It is not required to make a booking for these spaces. 

Student Offices

The department strives to provide desk space for registered students in shared offices, subject to criteria and availability. As space is limited, priority is given to full-time graduate students in research-based programs. To inquire about space, please contact Irene Wandili at

Audio/Visual Equipment

All audio-visual equipment (projectors, tape recorders, etc.) can be borrowed from Education Commons using the Education Commons Online Service Hub. A valid OISE library card is required. 

On-Site Accommodations


There are lockers that students can rent on the Concourse Level. The lockers are available on a first come, first serve basis. The cost is $22 and the rental period expires August 15.
