Zoom Rooms
Students can use these Zoom Room spaces between in-person classes if they need to log on for an online class or meeting. These spaces were carefully selected from rooms that are not being used for classes and also, take into account other building activities. Zoom Rooms are open to all students and are spread around campus, but there are not Zoom Rooms in every building. All Zoom Rooms have signs indicating the occupancy and guidelines for use. Usage of the Zoom Rooms will be monitored and the list will be updated as needed throughout the semester. Zoom Room List as of August 2020
