Reserving a Room

Members of the Cornell community may submit a reservation request for Mann Library room 100 or 102 and can do so the same day they would like to use the room.  Providing there are no conflicting reservations, your reservation will be approved almost instantaneously.  If you need to cancel a room, please email

Please review the room Details for a complete description and full list of hardware and software before requesting the room.  Computers installed in conference room 100 & 102 contain a basic image of standard software.  We do not make changes to the software image for individual events.  If you require specialized software for your event, please bring your own laptop/software.  We can assist in connecting your laptop to the AV systems in these rooms.
