Reservable Resources

The following items may be reserved for class use. To reserve these items, faculty should send an e-mail to operator@cs.umn.edu with the following information:

  • Name of the Class with CSCI number identifier
  • Start and end date of reservation
  • Max number of days a student may reserve an item
  • Number of units to reserve
  • Maximum reservations per student
  • Who can reserve an item, i.e. the entire class or provide a list of a subset of students from the class

The operator on duty will then set up a reservation for your class. The student can then stop by the operator office in Keller 1-201 with a photo ID and pick-up the equipment that he/she reserved.
