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. The group's advisor must be present in the room when the technology is to be used. If the advisor cannot be present, then a request for technology use by student groups must be submitted by the advisor to techclass [at] psu [dot] edu and must include the name and contact information of the primary person that will be using the technology. By doing so, the advisor accepts responsibility for any damages. A training session will then be scheduled in the room based on room and staff availability. A minimum for 72 hours notice is required. Note: This policy does not apply to 100 Thomas. Information on using 100 Thomas 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 priveleges. 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?
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 Form (forty-eight-hour notice is required).
Student groups wishing to reserve technology classrooms should contact the Student Activities Office in 125D HUB.

Because the classrooms are scheduled for semester-long classes, instructors should plan ahead and schedule any occasional technology classroom meetings as early as possible.
In the event that your request for a Technology Classroom cannot be accomodated, please contact Media Technology and Support Services (MediaTech), a division of University Libraries, to schedule portable technology equipment including LCD projectors, document cameras, analog and digital audio recorders, DVD/VCRs, televisions, multi-region VHS and DVD players, portable sound systems, 16mm projectors, 2 x 2 slide projectors, overhead projectors, laser pointers, and more.
