Guidelines for Room Allocations

Large Lecture Allocations

1. In allocating large lecture facilities (capacity > 83 seats), the campus gives priority to requests for MWF schedules. In addition, the college will give priority to: (a) high demand courses, especially general education courses, (b) course needs for instructional technology, especially if use of technology improves space utilization, (c) departments whose share of large lecture space is markedly lower than their share of total college enrollment, (d) departments that indicate a willingness to accept any suitable classroom on upper or lower campus, (e) departments for which one of every three large lecture rooms requested is scheduled during "non-prime time" instructional hours. "Prime time" classes are defined as those classes that start at 9:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. on TR and MW, (f) departments that enrolled large lecture rooms in past semesters to full capacity or in cases of exceptionally large capacity (i.e., Lecture Hall 151 seats 271 students) at least 80% full capacity.

2. In addition, the college will implement existing policy that departments release any unused large lecture spaces promptly at the end of phase 1 for re-allocation.

Regular Size Classroom Allocations

1. In addition to university policies and allocations, the College of Liberal Arts will implement the following guidelines for allocations of lecture facilities with capacity less than 84 seats ("regular size classrooms").

2. In making initial room assignments, the college will make incremental adjustments to improve equity for departments whose share of prime time regular classroom space is markedly lower than their share of the college enrollment. "Prime time" classes are defined as those classes that start at 9:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. on TR and MW.

3. The college will give priority to (a) high demand courses, especially general education courses, (b) course needs for instructional technology and specific facilities, especially if use of technology improves space utilization, (c) departments whose share of regular size classroom space is markedly lower than their share of total college enrollment, and (d) departments that indicate a willingness to accept any suitable classroom on upper or lower campus.

4. As needed, the college may move room assignments for specific courses in order to improve the match between course limits and room size.

5. The college will implement existing policy that departments release unused classrooms promptly at the end of phase 1 for re-allocation.
