How to Reserve

Once you have determined which room is available, please email Christina Castellanos and copy Sara Harmon to make a reservation.

You can also request rooms directly through your BCal:

  • Log into bCal.berkeley.edu
  • On your own calendar, begin to create an event as you normally would
  • Click "Edit event"
  • On the right side of the window, click the "Rooms, etc." link under Add.
  • Type in "Etch" to limit it to our building.  Be sure that the "Show only available" box is checked! 
  • Click "Add" next to the room you want.  Please note, Nuclear Engineering only owns 4101 and 1106.  Please do not try to book other rooms in the building.
  • Configure the rest of your event settings. We recommend that you do not invite your guests until after your event has been confirmed by the room scheduler. Click "Save."

Your proposed event will appear on the room calendar but THE BOOKING WILL NOT BE COMPLETE UNTIL YOU RECEIVE EMAIL FROM THE ROOM SCHEDULER APPROVING YOUR EVENT. The confirmation e-mail will be sent to your @berkeley.edu email address.

If your event will be in the evening or over a weekend, please check out any necessary keys from 4153 Etch by 3:45 pm the weekday of the event (for weekends come on Friday). In any event, please return furniture to its original layout and as much as possible leave the room the way you found it (i.e., wipe down tables, throw away trash, etc.).
