The University of Iowa

Classroom Scheduling will begin ad hoc special event scheduling the day after the schedule of courses are loaded to MyUI as a general rule of operation. Some exceptions may be in place. Please contact the office with submission date questions. See the Right to Recall Policy for further details.

Midterm examinations

Midterm examination classroom request information can be found on the Registrar’s Office web site.  Please submit paper work by the posted date to allow for midterm scheduling and posting to MAUI and MyUI in time for early registration. Classroom Scheduling will continue to schedule midterm examination requests beyond the date suggested on the web site. Please review the University of Iowa Policy on Course Exam Schedule Conflicts

Help sessions

Help sessions for schedule of courses will be scheduled no earlier than the third week of Fall or Spring semesters to ensure adequate placement for all schedule of courses. In order to provide equal distribution of classrooms, each course is limited to one help session following standardized class time frames. These same guidelines also apply to breakout session requests.

Special events

Requestors must complete the following online form to reserve a university classroom for a primary use activity. Classroom Scheduling will review the form and will respond in a timely manner. During peak request times, (the first two or three weeks of the Fall and Spring semesters), we ask that you understand there may be a delay in processing your reservation. Events are processed on a first-come, first-served basis with careful consideration to event date and time sensitivity.
