Room Assignment Policies exist to have the most positive impact on the largest number of students at Oregon State University. The following standards are followed when assigning rooms:
Faculty and instructors are responsible for sharing the ten-minute 'pass time' between classes. Every effort should be made to vacate the classroom in a timely way, allowing the following instructor to set-up and prepare, as well as allow the finishing instructor to make final remarks and gather materials. There is no 'ownership' of this time. Students should be encouraged to meet with the instructor during office hours rather than during the "pass time". Should conflicts develop, instructors should first attempt to resolve the concerns between themselves. If the result is unsatisfactory, conflicts must be mediated by department chairs.
General Purpose Classrooms are scheduled centrally by the Schedule Desk in the Registrar's Office through your college or departmental representative.
Departmentally controlled classrooms are assigned as requested and directed by departments. Maintenance, scheduling, and inventory of those classrooms is the responsibility of the controlling department.
Enhanced classrooms are computer-equipped and networked to campus servers for classes ranging in size from 21 to 615. Enhanced Classrooms may have either ceiling projectors or wall mounted, flat panel displays. All Enhanced Classrooms include a document camera. A full-time support person is on-call to assist faculty with equipment or network problems. Please see 25Live for enhanced classrooms.
Most General Purpose classrooms and many Departmental Classrooms are now equipped with Remote Learning/Web Collaboration technologies, including various styles and setups of cameras and microphones. While most classrooms equipped with these technologies are "Remote Ready," meaning that individuals may use them to deliver classes and meetings remotely without assistance, while a limited number require either training to use or a technician to be present to assist. Camera setup may include front/instructor facing cameras, back/audience facing cameras, both, or a movable tripod camera or webcam. Microphones may include instructor lavalier (clip) microphones, ceiling microphones, both, or integrated webcam/computer/soundbar microphones. A number of portable kits (a.k.a. Flex Kits) are also available for classrooms without installed Web Collaboration Technology.
There are five General Purpose Computer Classrooms available for departments to use for classes and events.
Please use 25Live to see room schedules or request use of GP Computer Classrooms (only authorized users will be able to make requests).

Instructors and students will need an ONID account to log in and use computers in these classrooms. Visit the room before your first class to insure it meets your needs and that the software you need is available.
