Flexible Seating: Rooms containing student furniture that can be reconfigured easily. Flexible Seating includes both rooms with individual student desks, and movable tables and chairs. General Purpose Classroom: A General Purpose Classroom is one whose features do not limit functional use by academic field. All General Purpose Rooms contain, at minimum, student furniture, a chalk or marker board, a projector, access to the internet, and wall connections to allow use of a personal laptop or devise with the projector. HDMI Connection: A wall connector used to transmit data from a personal laptop to a projector or other installed system.

Piano: A small number of otherwise standard Registrar-controlled classrooms contain pianos, which are required for use in specific classes. Many additional pianos are available on campus, but these are generally housed in specialized proprietary spaces. Proprietary Space: Proprietary Spaces are those controlled by specific academic units. In some cases these are General Purpose Classrooms, but in other cases, these may be Specialized Rooms, such as labs or studios. Registrar-Controlled Space: The Registrar's Office controls ~235 academic spaces on campus. These are all General Purpose Classrooms or Auditoria. Seminar Room: Rooms containing one large centered table that both students and faculty sit around. Specialized Room or Equipment: Specialized rooms are either program specific in nature, such as a dance studio or chemistry lab, or contain specialized equipment such as 3D printers or easels. In either case, they are inappropriate for classes of other disciplines.
