Updated CGWR Information!

Some of you may not be familiar with the SLC pre-pandemic! CGWRs (Collaborative Group Work Rooms) were designed as bookable spaces while the individual desks were designed as open space used on a first-come-first-serve basis. We are moving back to this model as of Winter semester 2022. Toronto Metropolitan University students are welcome to visit the SLC without a reservation. CGWR reservations will not be checked at the door and CGWRs are open for use if empty until someone with a booking arrives. If a student arrives more than 30 minutes after the start of their CGWR booking, the booking is void and if the room is occupied it can no longer be claimed.

Here is an overview of what you need to know:

  • 5 hour maximum booking time for a CGWR per session
  • Students will no longer need to show a CGWR reservation at the check-in desk
  • All students will have a standard 40 hours per week for CGWR bookings
  • CGWR bookings will be available to be booked up to 14 days in advance
  • Students will have 30 minute to arrive for their CGWR booking. If you are more than 30 minutes late you forfeit your CGWR reservation
  • Students may study in empty CGWRs until someone with a booking arrives
