Technology Classrooms may be scheduled for short-term use (one day to several weeks) or long-term use (a full semester). Visit our Technology Classroom Overview page to determine the types of technology classrooms available.
Student use of Technology Classrooms
Student groups at Penn State can schedule and use technology classrooms provided appropriate steps have been taken. All student groups must schedule rooms through the Student Activities Office in 125D HUB and sign a terms-of-use agreement. In order to use the technology, an officer of the group will need to schedule and attend an orientation session with Technology Classroom Support, at which time access codes and lock combinations will be provided. A 48-hour notice is required to schedule orientations, and requests must be submitted at the link above. Once the request has beenr eceived, Tech Class will then proceed with scheduling an orientation based on room availability and provide confirmation to the person making the request.
Please note, if you are using a room multiple times during the semester, or multiple rooms during a semester, you only need to attend one orientaiton session as our rooms have standardized equipment. If you are scheduled in Thomas 100, special conditions may apply. Information on using this room can be found at http://clc.its.psu.edu/classrooms/scheduling/100thomas.
To reserve a technology classroom for a regularly scheduled course, contact a staff assistant in your academic department who has scheduling privileges. It may be helpful to decide your technology needs before contacting your department. For example, would you prefer to use a Macintosh or a Windows computer? Would you like your students to have access to a computer during class? Do you want each student to have their own computer, or can it be shared?
Reserving a technology classroom for an event other than a scheduled course can also be done by a staff assistant within your department by submitting an Event Room Request (forty-eight-hour notice is required).
