We need a room that seats a minimum of 50, has flat desks, and after
hours access (our meeting times are 2PM .. Midnight), air conditioning,
network access, ideally ground floor with an external door. Rooms we
have in before that have worked well are:

  - Gordon Greenwood (Building 32), room 213.
  - Zelman Cowen (Building 51), room 207.
  - Hawken (Building 50), room S201.

Examples of places that haven't worked for us in the past are:

  - Chemistry (Building 68)
    Security won't allow us into Chemistry even if we have a room
    booked as it is high security.

  - Hawken (Building 50), room N201.
    Desk swivel, making it a dangerous place for laptops, and round
    table discussions are awkward (as are there are no tables).

  - Social Sciences (Building 24), room S603.
    This can work, at a pinch.  The issue is Security often locks all
    the external doors after dark, which means people arriving late
    can't get in.

Does that help?
