Standard classrooms seat 50 or fewer students, and are generally used for smaller lectures and discussion sections. They contain movable furniture (desks, chairs, and/or tables), and most have projection technology that is controlled from a fixed instructor podium, a wallbox, or a wall-mounted TV screen/remote control.

Computer Labs

Classrooms where each student has a computer station that may be used individually or in groups. Computer labs also include an instructor station, projection technologies, and whiteboards/blackboards.

Departmentally Controlled Rooms

Departmentally controlled rooms are resources that vary in size, seating capacity, and available technology. These resources can range from a small conference room with limited technology to a seminar room with more enhanced technology. Home departments have primary responsibility for managing and scheduling their use. 

Laboratory Classrooms

Laboratory classrooms have designated spaces for students to undertake experiments or assignments requiring hands-on application. Labs also include an instructor station, projection technologies, and whiteboards/blackboards.

Lecture Halls

Classrooms with seats in rows facing forward and an instructor podium, screens, and whiteboards/chalkboards at the front of the room. Lecture halls in the Interactive Learning Pavilion have tables and “turn to team” seating (i.e., swiveling chairs); all other lecture halls on campus have fixed seating with pop-up tray tables. Lecture halls range in size from 70 to over 800 students.

Performance Spaces

Rooms with specialized furnishings (and/or little furniture) designed to accommodate rehearsals and performances.

Project-Based Learning Rooms

A classroom designed to facilitate team learning in which students are seated in small groups (of 5-9 students) rather than individually. Each group has access to a computer monitor and/or whiteboard to allow for collaboration and group work. Because these rooms do not have a natural “front” or lecture area, project-based learning rooms also have microphones that enable instructors to move around the room, white/glass boards, and projection visible from multiple vantage points.

Seminar Rooms

Smaller rooms designed to accommodate in-person or hybrid discussions with at least one table and chairs which may be movable. Seminar rooms accommodate ~20 participants.
