Classroom Reservations

Due to classes moving to online/remote instruction for the remainder of the academic term, all classrooms will be locked unless requested to be used by faculty to utilize the space and technology to record a lecture or other instructional content. To identify what technology is in which room please review the online list.

Instructors are encouraged to work with their department scheduler to reserve a room but if that option is not available, please view the online help guide. Call Room and Course Scheduling at 621-3313 if you require assistance or to book directly.

Department Schedulers should log into Ad Astra and choose the Instructor Room Reservations for Recording a Lecture form for this process.
