SCHEDULING OF CLASSROOM AND LABORATORY SPACE

INITIATED: December 10, 1991

APPROVED: October 22, 1999

Date reviewed and updated: July 6, 2009

PURPOSE

To ensure the efficient and effective use of classroom space.

APPLICABILITY

All Faculty and Staff.

POLICY

Assigning and scheduling of all classroom and laboratory space is the responsibility of the Registration and Scheduling Office.

Classrooms and laboratories fall into three categories:

A. DESIGNATED SPACES:  These are spaces specifically designed for special use and cannot be used by others because of room design, equipment/instrument design, security, etc.  All departments with designated space will notify the Registration and Scheduling Office of the scheduling of these spaces prior to the beginning of each semester to be included on the master schedule.
B. PRIORITY SPACES:  These are spaces designed to serve special needs of a program yet could be used as a general classroom.  Departments that have been granted space denoted as priority will inform the Registration and Scheduling Office of the days and hours the room is needed for priority use.  The Registration and Scheduling Office will then schedule the space for nonpriority times.
C. GENERAL SPACES:  These spaces will be scheduled by the Registration and Scheduling Office.

For information on the assignment of Designated or Priority Space, refer to the policy on Space Utilization.
