Standard Meeting Patterns

The Standard meeting patters are designed to alleviate time conflicts for students and faculty and to allow maximum usage of all classroom space in addition to maintaining classroom contact minutes in accordance with IHL requirements. As much as possible, departments should schedule their courses according to the standard meeting patterns shown here.

Classroom Policies

To ensure the maximum usage of all classroom space, the Space Utilization Allocation Committee formed standard classroom policies and procedures for the colleges and departments to adhere to. This information can be found on the Provost's website.
