How to Reserve a Lab Classroom

The following guidelines must be followed to reserve a classroom:

  • Reservations must be submitted using the Computing Lab Classroom Reservation form. This form details the available classrooms and capacity.

  • Lab classrooms may be reserved for academic use only.

  • Reservations must be made a minimum of three business days before the start date of the class. CSSD recommends that reservations are made well in advance of this three business day deadline.

  • All reservations must be made by a faculty member or include the name of the faculty sponsor on the reservation form.

  • To ensure secure and reliable performance, a set of standard software titles is installed on computers in the CSSD Computing Lab Computers and classrooms. Additional software applications may not be added during the term. If you want to request installation of additional software titles for future semesters, complete the New Software Titles Request.

  • Classrooms are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Following occupancy rules and regulations, the maximum number of chairs and workstations are located in each classroom. Additional chairs may not be added to the classroom, nor moved from the lab into the classroom. Note: Classes exceeding the size of the capacity of the classroom will not be scheduled.

  • Occasionally, CSSD may need to change or cancel a lab classroom reservation. Should either situation occur, a staff member will notify the reservation contact by email and telephone.

  • Remember: If you no longer need a classroom, please cancel your reservation as soon as possible using the Campus Computing Lab Reservation form so that other faculty members may reserve the room.
