For students:

  • Book room online (
  • Open room with student ID (hold ID briefly against the fitting)
  • Practice :)
  • When you finish your reservation, sign out at the exit reader next to the wall with your student ID. Remaining practice time will be credited back.  

For teachers:

How does the electronic locking system work? 
Teachers can open their own room (= room with their own name on the door sign) with the staff card at any time by holding the card against the fitting (above the door handle). The other rooms in the department can be reserved via the room booking website.

How can I lock my room?
Private room (without reservation): Instructors can also permanently unlock their room by holding the employee card to the fitting (above the door handle) for a longer period of time. The fitting must flash three times at intervals of a few seconds. To lock the door again, the employee card must again be held longer at the fitting (above the door handle). If the door handle then goes through empty, the door is locked. This function is called "Office mode".

Other room (with reservation): To lock the room, hold the cards outside on the exit reader (black reader outside next to the door on the wall). 

What about the other rooms in my department?
These can be used with the employee card within the reserved time period after a reservation has been made in the room booking system.  When teachers open a room, it automatically goes into the so-called "permanently open" mode. This means that the room can be opened from the outside at any time. To lock the room, hold the cards outside on the exit reader (black reader outside next to the door on the wall).

Do I have to reserve my own room?
No, this room can be entered at any time. However, in order to ensure that this room is also displayed as "occupied" in the booking system and cannot be reserved by students or teachers, it is recommended that you also reserve this room. Teachers have superior rights over students in the booking system. It is therefore also possible to reserve a room that has been booked by students for practicing. To do this, proceed as follows: -  log in on with the MOZ access data - select the desired day under the menu item "Reserve" - click on "Search", all rooms available for the selected day are displayed - click on "Schedule" for the desired room - enter the desired time under "From*", the reservation duration under "For*" - click on "Reserve" - if students already have a booking in the selected period, the system prompts you to confirm the cancellation with a short text (e.g. "Class"). - Ready. In this way you can in principle make all reservations - even for your own room.

How can I enter series of appointments?
As soon as a room has been selected, the item "Weekly" appears in the reservation window at the bottom left. If this is checked, an end date can now be set. Now the reservation for this room with the same time and the same day will be entered weekly until the end date automatically.

How do I make the room available again after leaving it?
To make the room available again in the booking system the reservation must be cancelled in the booking system. In case, reservations can also be made by the porter's lodge or the secretary's office. For questions, error messages or suggestions please contact
