Room Scheduling

William James Hall Operations has scheduling authority over most public teaching spaces in conjunction with the Office of the Registrar, with exceptions that are managed by the three departments that reside in WJH. First priority will be given to courses taught by Psychology, Sociology and Social Studies faculty and other faculty offices in WJH. Please consult the WJH Room Information Guide for detailed information about controling authority, room capacity and multimedia capabilities within WJH. 

RoomBook is the required method for all FAS affiliates wishing to reserve meeting space for up to two years from the date of the request. 

William James Hall is a very special building with a vast history and we encourage events to be scheduled throughout the year. Event requests should be emailed to Sabrina Joaquim at and Fran Barry at for consideration as all events have to be approved at least 1 week in advance. Please note that there is a rental charge for non-WJH Departments and others for the use of select rooms in WJH. 

Policies for Use

If you bring anything into the room (food, beverages, extra furniture, etc.), you must remove it at the end of your meeting. Please also wipe the blackboard/whiteboard and tables down as needed. If you move the tables and chairs around to suite your group, please return them to their orginial positions at the end of your event. 

If you need custodial assistance for cleaning or furniture rearrangement, please contact Building Operations at 617-495-3801 or submit a request through PRESTO
