Manage Hostel Reservation can be found in the Dean Student Affairs role. This feature allows the user to allocate or reserve a specific bed space to a student. It also allows the user to view all Allocated, Vacant, Reserved and Booked bed spaces. 


NOTE: 



  • Bed Space can only be allocated to students who have paid for accommodation.

  • If a student's payment has been confirmed but his/her details cannot be found after using the search result, this is because the reservation time frame has elapsed and no accommodation has been allocated to the student. To rectify this, use the "Add Reservation" option from the "Manage Hostel Bookings" to make a reservation and allocate accommodation to the affected student.
