Go to and log in with your SFU credentials - ensure that you are using the AJAX interface, not the html interface! Select the Calendar tab, right click on the day for the booking and click 'New Appointment'; you should see the Quick Add popup, like this:

Quick Add for making a calendar appointment

Click on the More Details (lower left). You should now see the expanded Appointment Details screen:

More Details for making a calendar appointment

Click on Find Locations (upper middle tab). Now, you should be looking at something like the screen shot below; for Name, provide a room (I have used the room-number 3950), and click Search. The system will suggest matches; if more than one result is found, highlight the one you want and click Select at the bottom middle:

Find Locations for making a calendar appointment. Partial room-name/number is enough to search with.

Click on the Appointment Details tab, you should see something similar to the screenshot below - notice that the Location has now been filled in, and a Resources entry appears under the Attendees box.

Completed Location, for Appointment Details

If you want to check the availability of a room or Attendees, after you have made the Location and Attendee selections, click on Schedule tab:

Checking for available times, for all attendees and room-resources

Late-breaking news: you can now use AutoComplete for the room name/number, right from the Quick Add screen; enter any portion of the room name or number, and a drop-down selection will appear, allowing you to choose the exact item you want:
