Lab Reservations

Reserving the Language Lab

The reservation system can be accessed through ldtreservations.as.virginia.edu/ (sign in is required). For assistance accessing the system, please contact us

If you teach a course with multiple sections, we encourage you to coordinate with colleagues and course directors. 


Booking and Cancellation Guidelines 

  1. Reservations open shortly before the start of each semester. We ask all instructors to be mindful of other users when making multiple reservations.   
  2. Cancellations should be made at least 48 hours in advance in order to avoid blocking others from using the lab (earlier cancellations are appreciated).
  3. Reservations should be made at least three days in advance when using the reservation system. Please contact us if you need a last-minute reservation.
  4. Special Requests & Accommodations: Please contact Keith Samuels at least 48 hours in advance with requests for technology or support. We will do our best to accommodate.
