General Scheduling Guidelines

1. If you are a first-time user of ERRL, we will be happy to set up a meeting with you to discuss your project.  There are no charges for consultation.

2. If you are a first-time user of iLabs, you will need to register with iLabs in advance (, in order to be able to place a scheduling request with ERRL.

3. Your PI should confirm and assign your budget number needed for making the reservation.  The budget number tied to your name in iLabs will be the budget number that ERRL will invoice.  If you have more than one budget number tied to your name, please make a note in the scheduling reservation which budget number ERRL should invoice.

4. If you are using a lab animal for your study, you are responsible for ordering the animal(s).  ERRL does not order animals for investigators.  If you need additional information about ordering animals, please contact RAR at 410-955-3713. For additional information see

5. It is necessary that your animal(s) arrive at JHU a minimum of 5-7 days in advance of your scheduled reservation.

6. JHU investigators must cancel at least 24 hours in advance or a cancellation fee will be charged. Industry members must cancel at least one week in advance in order to prevent a cancellation fee.

7. Late arrival policy: study groups that arrive late may have their reservation cancelled and may be charged for the room reservation.
