About us

STARBO is the Student Timetabling and Room Booking Operations team.

The timetabling team deal with all scheduled teaching, liaising with schools and students to enable each class to run without it clashing with any other session those involved must attend. They also control the online timetable, allowing all students and related staff to see where and when the sessions will be held.

The room booking team deals with all ad-hoc (non-timetabled) sessions, including admin meetings, student society sessions, and extra non-timetabled seminars/events.
