Course delivery Preferences – Audio/visual, Room types and features

The Registrar's Office builds preference rules in Ad Astra based on course delivery methods and AV equipment needs to determine room assignments.  Instructors submitting preferences will more likely be assigned to a room fitting their specific course delivery needs.

Academic Preference Setting

The Registrar's Office builds a preference set, based on course delivery methods and needs, that is used in determining room assignments for Fort Garry campus classes.

Requesting Changes to Room Assignments

Requests for a change to an assigned teaching space must be made through the Registrar's Office by completing and submitting the on-line Classroom Change Request Form.

The Registrar’s Office will consider a Classroom change request if:

  • Change is required for medical purposes.
  • A different room type is required (eg. a seminar room versus a classroom).
  • There has been a timetable or course capacity change.
  • Back-to-back classes are in different buildings (note: if one class is assigned to a large theatre, the change cannot be accommodated).

Other requests may be considered but are subject to the Registrar's Office approval and classroom availability.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The largest Seminar Room on the Fort Garry campus has a capacity of 35.
