Does the Scheduling Office take rooms away from classes?

Once initial room assignments are released, the Scheduling Office will never take a room away from a section unless:
- The department scheduling coordinator instructs us to remove the room and put the class elsewhere or cancel it.
- A section has ‘0’ enrollment a week before the first day of class. In this case, the Scheduling Office will email the coordinator to ask if the section will still be offered or if the room may be given to someone else.
- A section is hidden on Patriot Web before registration. Departments will often create ‘shadow’ sections which they intend to open only if their open sections overfill. If we receive a class request at a time when a ‘shadow’ section is scheduled, the Scheduling Office will email the coordinator to ask if they still intend to offer that section or if the room may be given to someone else.
- Under extraordinary circumstances, the Scheduling Office may have to contact the instructor regarding a conflict. In such cases, the Scheduling Office strives to find a replacement room as soon as possible.
Classrooms assignments, however, are subject to change. Instructors are always advised to consult Patriot Web the day before their first day of class to confirm their teaching location. The room assignment listed on Patriot Web reflects where the class should be meeting.
