Note - any BBQ's require this form to be completed
The DO has grouped Societies and Clubs into three categories, which will determine the level of assistance that the group will get. This has been based on the amount and type of things that they do for CSE students, and a rough percentage of students in the group from CSE. These categories are not static and may change as the Society's/Club's contribution to the CSE Community changes.
Level 1 - IEEE
Level 2 - Sunswift, RoboGals
Level 3 - CSE Soc, CSE Revue and Stureps
CSE will provide, upon request:
*See rules on the Socs Office below.
2) Request for funding from CSE
The Development Office and CSE may provide financial assistance for special events, seminars, student travel, etc. The funding for this is limited, and in general, student groups are expected to be self funding. However, we have helped many groups in the past and will continue to do so. These requests should be made to the Manager of the DO. All Levels may apply for special financial assistance for a special event by sending a proposal to the Manager of the DO. Each event will be considered for it's merits at that time.
3) Contacting the HoS, Facilities, SS, ETC
Although The Head of School is the person responsible for the School, rarely will any request go directly to him. Most student inquires should be directed to the CSE Student Office or the CSE Development Office - they have been set up for students!
Complaints may be directed to the Grievance Officers. A grievance is defined as a "cause for complaint, especially of unjust treatment". If you have a grievance that has to do with the School of Computer Science and Engineering, you can appeal to one of the School Grievance Officers, currently: Gabi Keller and Ken Robinson.
Paul tries to have his door open to staff and students as much as he can, but please do not abuse this!
All requests that involve CSE Facilities or SS should be sent to the DO Manager.
4) Links to the CSE DO webpage.
Societies and clubs with links to CSE
Please email the DO Manager if you would like one changed or added.
5) PRINTING POSTERS, ETC
UNSW has a policy to be environmentally friendly. Poster printing is seen by many as a waste of paper, so all efforts should be made to minimize the number of pages printed.
The School has a colour printer for A3 and A2 size posters/flyers. To get something printed, email a pdf, .ai, .psd or .eps to the DO Manager with a request for printing, including the size and the number of pages requested. Note that jpeg posters usually print poorly and so would be a waste in colour. Posters must include the organising groups name and logo.
Posters must never be put up with sticky/masking tape. They should only be placed on the notice boards at Coffee on Campus, next to the Student Office, and next to the Socs Office (x2). Do not place them on windows, doors or walls.
When requesting posters to be printed, please allow five working days before you need the posters in case of printer problems, etc, or just in case we are busy or away!
6) Lab machine log-in screens.
The installation, configuration and testing of each theme takes a CSG member approx 30 - 45 minutes to complete, so request should only be for major events. Email the DO Manager with any requests.
7) CSE Calendar
The CSE Calendar is shown on the G-Floor TV, and (soon) on Google Calendar, etc, by subscription. Email the DO Manager with any requests.
8) Online Voting System
Upon request to the DO Manager, CSE will host a club's/society's election.
9) Room Requests
*Failure to leave a room in a tidy state will lead to a suspension of booking privileges*
All room requests should come through the booking form.
Available Booking hours:
In general, the Seminar Room and other CSE locations (labs, meeting rooms, etc) will only be available for unsupervised student use during normal business hours (9:00-17:00). Outside of these times special permission needs to be obtained. Please allow two weeks for this process.
Overnight and weekend access may require staff supervision (eg CSE technical support or Security Services) - which requires overtime pay which is costly to the School, and these costs may be passed on to the requesting group. Please take this into consideration when planning an event. If you really require an out of business hours booking, you should send an email request to the HoS via the DO Manager at the same time that you submit the room request. Room request will not be processed until the after hours request is approved.
You will need written permission from the Head of School if the event involves alcohol. Allow at least two weeks from your request. You should send an email to the HoS via the DO Manager at the time you make the booking.
All rooms should be left with the chairs in straight rows for the Seminar Room or under the tables for other rooms. All rubbish should be removed. A vacuum is available from the Socs Office if required. The white boards should be erased. The door should be closed. In the Seminar room the data projector must be shut down from the lectern (never touch the controls on the projector unit). A charge for cleaning may be levied if food and drink is spilled.
The Seminar Room is heavily utilized, so last minute bookings may often be impossible. Further, student bookings can be bumped by staff bookings, so please remember this also when planning. Booking a room but then not using it can inconvenience other groups, so repeat offenders may have this privilege suspended. Please try to reduce the wear-and-tear on the Seminar Room by only booking it for large events.
Kitchen (Common Room):
This is a staff area. Many of the staff feel that this is one area that they can relax in away from students, and so only for special events will student groups be given access to it. If the event is very large and requires exclusive use of the kitchen, please clearly state this in your request to the DO Manager. Permission is only at the discretion of the HoS.
10) Socs Office
The Socs Office has been set up by the DO to help these groups run. However, the room is a part of the DO and so is officially in DO Manager's name.
Only level 3 society executives are given access. Keeping this number small improves the security of the room. The card on the door is a "pending access" care. This means that one swipe will unlock the door until the card is swiped again.
People who are given access must abide by these rules:
The room is being lent to you in good faith. Please do not ruin the privilege. It is suggested that whenever you use the room you put the door into "open" mode so that any students may visit. If you use the room with the door locked you risk getting a reputation of being elitist.
