Unscheduled or lightly-scheduled classrooms & reservable conference rooms, Fall 2020

Updated October 9, 2020

In early August 2020, some available classrooms were set aside for use by faculty and students:

  • for faculty to use a white board while recording a lecture to be posted online,
  • for students to use to attend a synchronous online course scheduled before or after an in-seat course as needed, study alone in a quiet space, and for other reasons, but only by small groups of individuals.

These empty classrooms will be available throughout the fall 2020 semester.  Guidelines for the use of these rooms are available below.

Note:  Faculty and staff can view open slots in Allendale classrooms (thanks to George McBane in the CLAS Dean’s office).
