All classrooms have wireless capability which ensures that instructors and students can bring laptop computers into the classrooms and connect to the Internet.

For wireless applications, Instructional Services will need to set wireless domains on individual computers ahead of time. Please do not assume that it’s possible and/or probable to walk into any of Penn State Beaver’s classrooms at class time and have the classroom(s) be fully operational. First, please consult Instructional Services, then practice in the room ahead of time.

Instructional Services is responsible for scheduling all other “special use” rooms on campus, with the exception of the Special Events Room (SER) in the Student Union Bulding. Activities that will occur in the Special Events Room must be scheduled through Jeremy Lindner, director of housing and food services. 

The most frequently requested special use rooms on campus are rooms 14, 15, 16, and the Lodge in the Student Union Building (SUB) and conference rooms 103 and 203 in the Ross Administration Building (RAB). The auditorium in the Student Union Building has priority scheduling for theater classes and theatre productions. Although the auditorium is considered as a classroom for the theater department, it may be scheduled as a special use room by contacting Instructional Services. The auditorium has a built-in data and video/audio projection system, is Internet ready, and has public address and lighting systems.

As always, Instructional Services will deliver to any classroom or special use room other instructional media (television, overhead transparency, etc.) as needed and agreed upon. Please be as specific and thorough as possible when requesting services and equipment.

PolyCom videoconferencing is available in room 1 GCB, room 2 MBB, room 107 MBB, and room 16 SUB. Room 16 SUB has a capacity of 45 with tables and chairs. For all PolyCom videoconferencing needs, contact Ted Froats. Videoconferencing and PolyCom courses shared with other campuses have priority use in each of the four rooms.

Please be considerate of others when scheduling and using all campus classrooms and facilities. If you know that next semester’s courses will require enhanced technology, please make sure the Registrar’s Office is aware of that. Conversely, please do not request classrooms with enhanced technology unless you need them because you may be taking rooms from instructors who really do need them. 

Please be sure to erase blackboards and whiteboards, put tables and chairs back in their original positions, and ensure that rooms are clean for their next usage. Please do not occupy a classroom until you check with the Registrar's Office regarding room availability and formal scheduling.

We welcome the opportunity to plan your in-class media activities with you, so please don't hesitate to request our services.

Finally, if you have suggestions for classroom enhancements and improvements, please forward them to Ted Froats.
