Bookings

The venues above are part of the list of registered users at the JANET Videoconferencing Service and once entered into the booking service, they connect automatically to the other venues included in that particular booking.

The registered venues are usually those in Education / Council institutions in the UK. External venues can be included simply by supplying us with the IP address for that particular venue, be it UK based or international. Please remember to obtain this BEFORE making your booking wherever possible, alternatively supply us with the contact details of the person who can supply us with this information. Generally, a week in advance to allow for time differences slowing down communication, etc.

Our rooms CAN be booked by other institutions through the JVCS booking process. There is NO NEED to make additional booking arrangements if the room you want is booked by another institution.

  • Booking is on a first come, first served basis
  • There is a minimum booking of 1 hour per room.

You can check, make and cancel bookings online:
