Meeting Room Guide

In the Sir Duncan Rice Library, we have a variety of meeting and seminar rooms available for booking by both University of Aberdeen staff and for external hire.

For further information, including visual representations, please read our Meeting Room Guide.

Internal Requests

It is no longer possible for staff to book meeting rooms in The Sir Duncan Rice Library via Outlook. All enquiries should be sent to

Please ensure that you consult the Room Booking Information prior to submitting a booking request and attach a completed Room Request Form to your email. (Last updated July 2018)

Please note our meeting rooms and spaces are not available for use by students, societies, nor course coded teaching.

A current staff member must be present at all times for bookings to be classed as Internal. This person must read and follow the guidelines attached above to ensure that their booking runs as smoothly as possible. If this is not the case, your request will be treated as external and room hire charges will apply.

If surplus funds are being generated from your request, this will again be classed as external with charges applicable.

All Library room requests can only be actioned during working hours and must be completed a minimum of 72 hours (not including weekends and staff holidays) in advance of the date required.

External Requests

For requests coming from non-University of Aberdeen staff or ones that may require room fees, please contact Catriona Quinn at or alternatively on 01224 273866.
