Time Requests

  • Advanced reservation requests  are due on the 15th for the following month (e.g., requests for January must be submitted by December 15th) using the magnet reservations request form.
  • Magnet time is assigned using the following procedure:
    • All requests will be posted on the following month calendar, as the requests are received
    • Facility administration will resolve conflicts and post a final calendar by the 22nd.
    • All requests will be considered equally, but weight will be given to assure appropriate access to Facility resources (e.g. consideration of balancing access, time-sensitive studies, etc.)
  •  Requests made more than month in advance will only be considered in special circumstances such as a long-term time-course study (critical timing for repeat events) or to accommodate a visiting collaborator’s travel plans.
  • Paying users will take precedent over “protocol development”
  • Late/urgent (current week/month) reservations will ONLY be approved if a system manager determines there is sufficient time in the schedule to accommodate your request.
