The FAS Registrar's Office and Instructional Media Services has pooled information on classrooms within the FAS inventory on the Media and Technology Services website. Browse buildings and rooms for information on seating style and capacity, classroom features, audio-visual equipment, and contact e-mail addresses for schedulers and building managers.  If you are interested in finding out more about recent or upcoming learning space renovations in the FAS or are looking for a flexible, active learning space, you can learn more at the FAS Learning Spaces website.

The classroom inventory includes information provided by those FAS departments able to participate in the classroom survey. Not all FAS departments have space available for non-departmental events. Reservation requests and questions should be addressed to the scheduler for the room.

Requests for audio-visual equipment or services in FAS classrooms may be directed to:
