Make sure to update room characteristic information during ECS period 1. Updating room characteristics provides OCM with information about the type of room the instructor would like to teach in. It also helps students and instructors by not moving their course section during the first week of classes because the instructor didn't get the type of room they wanted.
- Check with the instructor to verify the appropriate room characteristics.
- Don't request room characteristics that conflict with each other (e.g., Active Learning Classrooms and Tablet Arm Chairs or West Bank and East Bank). Search for classroom features if you have questions about potential room characteristic conflicts.
- Choose a maximum of four room characteristics. Choosing multiple room characteristics limits the number of possible classroom.
