Reduced Capacities for Registrar-Managed Classrooms

Reduced classroom capacities are posted on our website. Consult the Registrar-Managed Classrooms web page to view the pre-COVID seating capacities and the layout of classrooms in 22 buildings on the Morningside Campus. Faculty are responsible for not exceeding the reduced capacities of their classrooms as they manage their Wait Lists and enrollments. Reduced capacities are both posted in all classrooms and are available through the Registrar’s website.

Classrooms for On-line Instruction

Changes made to the Methods of Instruction of courses in Course Management to On-line Only automatically cancels classroom assignments. If the Method of Instruction for your course is On-line Only, but you would like to teach remotely from a Registrar-scheduled classroom, please email us at [email protected]

Leased Classroom Spaces

The Office of the University Registrar regularly leases classroom spaces on the Morningside campus. In spring 2021, we will again lease classrooms in Earl Hall and Lerner Hall. If the Method of Instruction of your course changes during the spring 2021 semester and you no longer need classroom space in Earl or Lerner, please contact us via email at [email protected].

Newly Built or Renovated Classroom Policy June, 2019

This policy governs the management and space assignment of all classrooms except those at CUIMC.

All classrooms currently in general use for academic instruction are assigned to the University Registrar who is fully responsible for the scheduling of courses and other course-related events in these rooms.

Dedicated or sequestered classrooms that are vacated for any reason will be transferred to the Registrar for space assignment and scheduling of courses.

All new classrooms constructed on campus or renovated will be managed by the Registrar regardless of the project funding source.
