Who assigns classroom space?

Centrally-serviced classrooms for credit courses are assigned by the Scheduling department at the Office of Registrarial Services, with assistance from your departmental administrator. Multimedia requirements can be taken into consideration.

For non-academic reservations, contact the scheduling and reservations clerk by phoning 519-824-4120 ext. 53015.

What technology is permanently installed in classrooms?
To find out what presentation technology is available in centrally-serviced classrooms, visit the Classroom Profiles website (login required) or phone at 519-824-4120 ext. 52778. Some classrooms are equipped with full digital multimedia technology that is password protected. Other classrooms have an overhead, slide projector and screen.
How do I access installed classroom technology?

A password is needed to access multimedia technology that is integrated through a touch panel. All users must be authorized by their departmental administrator and trained by CTS AV specialists. AV cabinets and drawers automatically unlock when the password is entered.

Ask your departmental administrator to email Classroom Technical Support if you have not been authorized to use the equipment.
