SLU students, faculty, and staff can reserve available group study rooms and spaces in Pius using the online reservation system, D!BS. Currently there are 13 group study spaces in Pius ranging from large study rooms that accommodate up to 15 people, medium spaces for four to six people, and smaller spaces for individual use.
Patrons can locate and reserve available spaces up to two weeks in advance using their Smartphones, tablets, or desktops and can tailor their search by date, time, and duration from one to three hours. Patrons can also check room availability by scanning QR codes located outside the reservable spaces to instantly book a space or book a future reservation.
Once reservations are booked, patrons receive an email /text confirmation as well as reservation reminders before the booked time and notifications that the reservation is about to end.
The online service was instituted in spring FY15 and since then patrons have booked almost 13,000 reservations. As more and more patrons learn of and use the service the increasing reservation statistics reflect the popularity of this service. The month of September had 1,457 bookings.
Using is quick and easy. The following video below illustrates the process.
