Why did so many of my department’s classes not receive a room this semester?

Several factors determine whether a section receives a room placement or not, including:
- Time-block: rooms are most often requested on M/W/T/R across the 10:30am-4:15pm time-blocks. Scheduling a class during these times can decrease the likelihood that a room might be assigned, simply because the demand is so high.
- Classroom technology: certain types of rooms are less numerous than others (e.g. student computer classrooms, video-conferencing rooms, large 150+ classrooms)
