Classroom Scheduling: Policy 01.024

If you have concern regarding a room that is classified as "Classroom" and falls within the Priority or Central Schedule, please note:

  • All rooms designated as "classrooms" in the University scheduling system are foundation for this policy as implemented by the Office of the University Registrar.
  • Any requests for room type changes or exceptions to this policy, must be run through an appeals process.
  • An appeals request will only be accepted by the Dean of a college. 
  • The Dean will submit a request for classroom room type change to the appeal team to the Director of Space Management/Facilities Planning and Space Management who will then bring forward to the appeal team.
  • Classroom Room Type Request Form (Under Construction).
