Checking in (NEW feature):

If you haven’t already learned the hard way that your reservation expires if you don’t show up to it within 15 minutes of it starting, then let me save you a whole lot of headache. Starting Winter term, you can now Check In to your reservation from the mobile app and keep your reservation alive, even if you’re going to be a little late. Checking into your reservation gives you 1 hour from the start of your reservation to badge into your room. That way your reservation doesn’t get canceled just because you were 20 minutes late. Here’s how to do it:

Method 1 – Mobile App

Log into the mobile app and do one of two things:

  • Tap the reservation you want to check into and then tap the CHECK IN button
  • Swipe left across the reservation you want to check into and then tap the blue “Check In” button

Method 2 - Website

Log into the website and follow these steps:

  1. Look for the “My Bookings” section and then locate the reservation you want to check into
  2. Click on the “Check In” button
