Reserving a department resource using Google Cal

  • Go to and sign-in with your NCSU account if you are not
  • Create a new calendar event on your calendar by either clicking Create button or by dragging across the time slot you’d like in the calendar.

1. Title your event appropriately, so if an admin needs to contact you to cancel in case of a conflict they know who to contact (e.g. Bogdan Nikiforov – Reserved for Dell Tech)

2. Pick a time of your event

  • Note that all day radio button will not appear by default and you will need to hit the the time in order for it to surface).

3. In Add rooms or location you will need to search for ARE resources we are under N (Nelson). By default resources that are already booked will not show up as available. You can search in different ways, either browser resource for the building or try to find particular room number of a resource – I find it easiest to just type the room number 3302 or 4302.  Here are the conference rooms that we have that have a resource calendar attached to them:

  • N-3-N-3302-ARE-3302 Conference Room
  • N-4-N-4302-ARE-4302 Conference Room
If you do not want the calendar event to appear on your calendar – you can Deny the invitation. This leaves the calendar invitation intact on the resource calendar and “frees” your calendar so others can see if you are available/not available. If you delete the event from your calendar it will subsequently delete the event from the resource calendar.
