Room Assignments

Home > Room Assignments

The office of Room Assignments coordinates with Teachers College (TC) Academic departments and the TC community public room locations for courses, workshops, conferences and events throughout the College. 

  • Rooms for TC Academic Courses
    • Rooms for academic courses are assigned approximately one month before the start of the semester.
    • Academic class rooms are requested through the Academic Department's Director of Academic Administration (DAA).  The DAA completes the departmental 'RAPO' for each course.
    • The RAPOs outlines specific room attributes for each scheduled class.
    • Rooms are assigned by projected enrollments, required room attributes, and other special pre-assignment requirements.  
    • Due to space limitations, rooms for non-academic classes/events are not assigned until after rooms have been finalized for academic courses.   
    • Once academic courses are assigned, non-academic class/event room requests are processed on a "first-come - first serve" basis.
  • Rooms for TC Workshops, Conferences and Events:
    • Rooms for Teachers College workshops, conferences and events are assigned after academic class rooms are assigned each semester
    • Non-academic/event room requests are submitted on the 'Request a Room' form.
    • Due to space limitations non-academic classes/events are ONLY assigned to events sponsored by Teachers College official departments.
    • Once academic courses are assigned, all Teachers College non-academic/event room requests are processed on a "first-come - first serve" basis.
