Team Room Policy

Priority will be given to groups of 2 or more students. Individuals may be asked to vacate the room by larger groups.

Team Rooms can be scheduled by students, faculty or staff directly from the touch-panels by the door to each Team Room.

Students with reservations must occupy the room within the first 15 minutes of the reservation period or the reservation is forfeited, and the room becomes open to other groups on a first-come, first served basis for the remainder of the reservation.

Students without reservations must vacate room when requested by students with valid reservations.

Teams Rooms are available on first-come, first served basis when not reserved (the touch-panel lights at the door will be green). Reserve the room at the current time via the touch-panel to avoid losing the room.

Students can reserve 4 time slots per week; each time slot can be 3 hours or less. Exception to this rule: GA tutoring sessions.

How to Use Touch Panel to Reserve a Team Room

Use the touch panel outside each Team Room to make a room reservation for a current time or a future time.

If a room is available, the touch panel will show a green background with the text “Available” displayed with green back-lit buttons:
