EXAMINATION SCHOOLS

Accommodation for lectures

Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture in the Schools next term are asked to make a booking by the end of the current term at the latest.

When booking, please indicate the number of students expected to attend the lecture; this information is essential if the total is expected to exceed 100.

All lectures should start on the hour, and afternoon lectures should finish by 6 p.m. To allow room for changeovers, lecturers should arrange to complete their lecture by five minutes to the hour.

Owing to examination requirements in Hilary Term, lecture rooms in eighth week may be restricted, and in Trinity Term are not fully available in first, second, and third weeks.

Overhead and 35-mm projectors and a limited number of video and LCD projectors are available if booked twenty-four hours in advance. Microphones are provided in the Writing Schools.

Short equipment familiarisation sessions (of ten to fifteen minutes' duration) can be arranged at convenient times. Please contact the Schools (details below) if you wish to arrange a familiarisation session.

All enquiries in respect of lecture bookings, facilities, and equipment should be addressed in the first instance to Martin Batchan (telephone: (2)76901, e-mail: martin.batchan@admin.ox.ac.uk).
