Update: Policies for the Use of Academic Space
Every effort is made to accommodate CIO requests for academic space. As a result of the large number of CIOs and need to prioritize classroom space for classes and labs, CIO demand for classroom space frequently outstrips supply. We ask for CIO patience and cooperation in our efforts to meet your needs with the understanding that we may not always be able to approve your first choice of space and time.
