Room Assignment / Request

Southern classrooms

In addition to regular class rooms, Ohio University Southern Campus also has several smart rooms and rooms with ceiling mounted projectors. Typically each smart room has a ceiling mounted projector, PC, and a DVD/VCR player. The Associate Dean’s office assigns rooms based on class size and technology needs. If you need a smart room or room with ceiling mounted projector, for your class, however, you may request one from the associate dean’s office prior to the beginning of the quarter. Every attempt will be made to honor your request.
