Use of Classrooms
Scheduling of all general use classrooms for academic courses is the responsibility of both the Office of the Vice President of Academic and Faculty Affairs and the Department of Information Technology. The scheduling of all general use classrooms and conference rooms for special events is the responsibility of the Department of Information Technology. Special events are defined as any event not directly associated with a specific course number or with a scheduled meeting time of an academic course. Special events cannot be scheduled in classroom facilities beyond the current semester as scheduled in Banner.
It is the responsibility of the requesting department to ensure their class or event is completed as scheduled and the room vacant prior to the next scheduled program. All rooms are reserved with the scheduled end time of ten minutes before the hour or half hour with the final ten minutes used as a transitional time for instructors, students, and technical support staff.
Requests for classroom space by outside agencies will be made to the Department of Information Technology and are contingent upon management approval. In general, the mission of a requesting agency must be reflective of the mission of the Augusta University. Any group approved to use Augusta University classroom space must strictly adhere to the following requirements:
The Department of Information Technology has multiple rooms on campus with instructional technology installed as a permanent fixture. This equipment should not be used without prior permission. Finding an empty room and conducting an ad hoc meeting or class is inappropriate and potentially disruptive to groups that may have classes or events scheduled in the room.
Requests for support that are made with less than twenty-four hours notice (excluding weekends and holidays) will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Short notice requests will be fit into the schedule, as workload permits, with priority given to previously scheduled classes and events.
