Classroom Related FAQ for Faculty


How do I find my Classroom Assignment?

Use the online Course Browser to identify the classroom assigned for any given course. Take special care to note when the course has a multiple meeting pattern (i.e. meets at different times on different days and/or class meetings have different durations) as well as to alternate Wednesday meeting sessions, as these may have a different classroom than the rest of the class meetings.

How do I make a request to Change Classrooms?

If the classroom assigned to you does not accommodate your needs and you wish to request a reassignment, please fill out a Classroom Change Request form so that we have all the details we need:

Step 1: Identify a preferred available classroom.

To search for an available classroom, use the classroom occupancy application which displays the classroom utilization by term and by classroom location.

Instructions for viewing the classroom details are found under the heading ‘What is in the Room?’ (above).

NOTE: If the classroom you are assigned to does not include some of the additional technologies that are essential for your teaching (such as a document camera) please note this on the Classroom Change Request Form.

Step 2:  Request a classroom change by completing a Classroom Change Request Form:

Fall 2020 Classroom Change Request Form

We will do our best to accommodate your needs.

  • If you have indicated a specific classroom that you wish to move to, and either (a.) it is currently unassigned or (b.) the current faculty member assigned to this space has agreed to swap classrooms, we will process this request and notify you.

  • For those faculty who have stated general needs for classroom features, general room location and the like (.e.g. ‘Seminar room’, ‘any room Science Center’), we will next try to find suitable available space.

  • In limited cases we may propose a classroom swap(s) in order to accommodate your classroom change request. We work closely with the Building Directors in these cases.
