Many units and departments provide reservation-based unassigned seating, or "hoteling space," for workers who usually work remotely, but need to be on campus occasionally.
- Cornell Human Resources has prepared a guide to Flexible Work at Cornell.
- You can learn more about the concept of hoteling at Wikipedia's entry, Hoteling.
This set of articles covers
- how people responsible for providing hoteling space can set up and maintain listings for their spaces
- how workers can find and reserve spaces, and how to change or cancel reservations.
Cornell uses Microsoft Bookings to let you specify the type of space you need (shared space, cubicle, office, etc.) along with the date, time, and duration needed, so you can reserve a space that meets your needs.
Bookings originated as a way to schedule time with an individual, so some of its terminology isn't intuitive, but the process itself is straightforward.
