The University of Iowa

University Classroom

These spaces reside under scheduling control and management of Classroom Scheduling for course offerings and special event scheduling.  Further within this category are the merged departmental classrooms, referred to as Level 1.  Classroom Scheduling will provide University Classroom assignments; however, college/departmental input will guide the assignment process.  In some cases, upon completion of the initial classroom scheduling window, shared special event scheduling can commence collaboratively between Classroom Scheduling and the college/departmental affiliated office representative until the end of the session, excluding final exam week.

University Classrooms are scheduled and managed with rules and regulations to maximize University resources.  All classrooms will adhere to all Registrar and college/departmental rules and regulations unless an approved exception exists from the Office of the Provost or Classroom Scheduling.  Policies exist regarding, but not limited to, off-grid scheduling, non-standard class time, on-grid event scheduling, and seat fill requirements.

Programmed Classroom

These spaces reside under scheduling control and management of the college/departmental affiliated office during the initial scheduling process for course offerings programming.  On occasion, a Programmed Classroom, or Level 2, will be needed to satisfy seating demand unable to be fulfilled by the University Classroom inventory.  Upon completion of the initial classroom scheduling window, shared special event scheduling commences collaboratively between Classroom Scheduling and the college/departmental affiliated office representatives as needed.

Programmed Classrooms are different from traditional University Classrooms due to the unique scheduling needs within the undergraduate or graduate/professional schools that warrant a different operational process.

Specialty Space

These spaces reside under the scheduling control of the colleges/departments.  These spaces include, but are not limited to, laboratories, studios, practice rooms, meeting rooms, and conference rooms.  Specialty spaces serve a variety of departmental activities and course programming.

Specialty Spaces are non-classroom type instructional spaces assigned to academic departments.
