Any combination of these attributes may be included for individual CRN sections on the Call for Courses (SSR1000) report.

Please remember that, if listed, these attributes are required and they override any attribute requirements from the departmental level. The scheduling software will not find you a room that doesn't have these attributes.

Also, be aware that all attributes are treated as "AND" requirements. If you list requirements such as "S1" (Tablet Arm Chairs (movable)) and "S3" (Tables/Chairs (movable)), the system will only find you rooms with both, which aren't many. All GP rooms have at least one writing surface, so there is no need to list whiteboard or blackboard if either will do.

We have tried to supply attributes to encompass many "OR" situations, such as the "S0" (Moveable Chairs (any)) attribute. DO NOT request a combination that physically does not exist on campus. This is not the place to indicate to Facilities Services what kind of rooms we should have.

List of Valid Room Attributes

Room Attributes

Code Definition
GP General Purpose Room. We add this automatically when entering attributes. You do not need to write this, but you will see it on the report. You can also write this in if you wish the system to ignore departmental requirements and give you any appropriately sized and located GP room.
E111 E111: Enhanced Clsrm Projector. Fully enhanced with projection onto an appropriately sized white screen. It may be impossible to place a course with a small head count in an E111 room.
E112 Monitor Cart
GPC General Purpose Computer Classroom. This is a classroom with computer stations for each student. This attribute is used only in conjunction with 016 or 017.
016 Computer Classroom (PC). This means a PC computer station for each student. Due to limited availability, these rooms are pre-assigned.
017 Computer Classroom (MAC). This means a Mac computer station for each student. Same as with the PCs, these rooms are pre-assigned.
ILT Interactive Learning Spaces - Technology Enabled. Interactive learning environment that provide cooperative learning pods with one computer per pod and available laptop connections. These pods encourage student collaboration and peer teaching with technology that allows them to easily present work for review by peers and instructors.  Furniture is designed to facilitate small-group work and the ability for instructors to interactively coach students during activities.
ILS Interactive Learning Spaces. Interactive learning environment that provides cooperative learning pods without technology. These pods encourage student collaboration and peer teaching. Furniture is designed to facilitate small-group work and the ability for instructors to interactively coach students during activities.

Electronic Equipment

(Other than that which is included in "Enhanced")

Code Definition
Z2 Instructor Speech Amplification.
V15 Interactive Display(SMRT). Ability to annotate over any computer image. This used to be listed as SMRT.
VPOD Lecture Capture. Ability to record presentation and instructor audio and upload into learning management systems. Arrangements must also be coordinated with Academic Technologies.
VDIS Videoconferencing Classroom. For interactive links with other sites. Arrangements must also be coordinated with Academic Technologies.
VPWR Limited Power Outlets at Seats. For those who forgot to recharge all their electronic devices the night before.
DI Dual Image.  Ability to display two different images simultaneously in the classroom.
WP Wireless Presentation.  Ability to present and control presentations from a tablet or mobile device.
IM Image Magnification. Ability to project the screen images or activities from a demonstration table or hood.
SS Surround Sound. Classroom equipped with surround sound for films/video playback.

Writing Surfaces

Every GP room has some sort of writing surface. Only include these if you really care which type.

Code Definition
Z5 Whiteboard. Sometimes the pens will even be there.
Z6 Whiteboard Only (no Chalk). For our instructors that are allergic to chalk dust or have amathophobia.
Z7 Chalkboard (Any Size). Who needs color?
Z8 Board >= 24ft long. We have lowered the size to 24 ft. This now includes whiteboards, so if you are picky you may want to include either Z5 or Z7. Also includes rooms where the board may be shorter than 24ft but has sections that can be raised and lowered as needed.

Furniture Arrangements

Please note that there are some rooms that don't fit neatly into an attribute we thought people would ask for. Who really requires fixed tablet chairs on a flat floor?

Code Definition
S0 Moveable Chairs (any). This includes both "S1" and/or "S3". The perfect choice if you want to be able to move things around.
S1 Tablet Arm Chairs (movable). Not bolted to the floor.
S3 Tables/Chairs (movable). Some tables are more movable than others. We tried to include those that can reasonably be repositioned to meet the needs of the class.
S5 Tiered Seating. Actually tiered or sloping, but generally fixed. Can be long tables, theatre style, starting flat and then going up, etc. Mostly large rooms.
S10 Round Tables.  No, not cute little cocktail tables.  Round tables that seat 6 - 9 people and bring flashbacks of all those endless conferences we've attended.

Room Features

Code Definition
A4 Carpeted Floor. No guarantees as to coffee stains, but carpeted.
A6 Flat Floor. May be carpeted, linoleum, wood, or concrete.
A7 Raised Platform for Professor. Be aware that not all platforms are wheelchair accessible.
A8 Windows. Some degree of natural light. A tiny slit in a door does not count.
A9 Room Darkening Capability. This was somewhat of a judgment call. We didn't include any rooms with those wimpy white shades or blinds that won't close.
A2 Air Conditioning. Portable swamp coolers don't count.
F2 Demonstration Facilities. Rooms with gas/air hookups, etc. Not just a long table to put your stuff on.
SINK Sink used for class purposes. We even tested to make sure there was running water. Not sure if they actually drain to anywhere...
Z11 Proj Screen Offset From Board. One of the more confusing attributes. It includes rooms where the projection screen is not dead center of the front of the room. The screen may be half the front (to one side) or at an angle. Also includes rooms with multiple screens and rooms with one screen and writing surfaces on more than one wall. With multiple screens, the screen for the enhanced projector may still be centered. Generally more restrictive than the "Z12" attribute.
Z12 Proj Screen blocks < 50% board. Again, somewhat of a judgment call. We didn't include rooms where you have a bit of writing surface, the screen, and then a bit more of writing surface. We tried to include those where you can have the screen down and still have a single sizable chunk of writing area. Little whiteboards to the side don't count.

Accessibility

Code Definition
ALD Assistive Listening Devices. Rooms as provided by Academic Technology.
ADI Wheelchair-accessible for Instr. Only includes rooms where the instructor can access all teaching equipment at the front of the room. Excludes rooms with platforms but no ramp.
