Screen 130 - Searching for Available Classrooms

You may search for a room at the section's meeting times according to its enrollment limits. If you want to scan a list of available rooms at your meeting time, the system will transfer you from Screen 130 to Screen 1C6, Classroom Schedule Request.

The room management system searches for available classroom space and lists available rooms prioritized by subject area, department, or school of the course before displaying rooms open to everyone. This search facility only lists available rooms that the searching operator is authorized to schedule.

The following information is used to search for classroom space for regularly scheduled course sections:

- subject area of course section

- days of the week the course section meets

- starting and ending times of the section

If a course section is already scheduled into a classroom, you cannot search for available rooms. You must unpost a scheduled room before you can perform the search function.

For more information on searching for and scheduling available classrooms, see the section Classroom Management.
