Classroom Capacity and Layouts

Depending on the classroom or lab, all students may not be able to be in the classroom or lab at once to allow for social distancing.  These plans will help faculty and students work together to create a schedule that allows students who wish to attend in person to be physically in the classroom as much as possible.

Classroom capacities and diagrams of socially-distanced classroom layouts have been diagramed and planned. Please note that these capacities and layouts are subject to change as health guidelines evolve and/or layout and furniture changes to our spaces are implemented.
