Instruction Allocation Priority Policy

Quarterly instruction reservations are submitted by departmental chairs or their designated room scheduler in accordance with the UW Departmental Time Construction Calendar. Instructors must work through their respective departments for any adjustments to dates and times to assure no class conflicts and instructional information is updated in Time Schedule.

CBE instruction is the only room reservation accepted on a quarterly basis. One-time reservations will be accepted once the previous quarter concludes but may have to be adjusted to accommodate last minute quarterly class changes.

The priority of scheduling academic courses into CBE rooms are ranked by the following criteria.

      • Instruction that adheres to the Office of the Registrar’s Learning Spaces Policy.
      • Undergraduate and Graduate matriculated required core classes that
        • Meet multiple days of the week (in order) MTWThF, MTWTh, MWF or TTh (does not include honors, quiz, or other break-out sections) and
          • Blocks for 50-minute meetings (“hour-long classes”) must have starting times of 8:30, 9:30, 10:30, 11:30, 12:30 or 1:30, and meet at the same starting time throughout the week.
          • Blocks for 80-minute meetings (“90-minute classes”) have starting times of 8:30, 10:00, 11:30, 1:00, and meet at the same starting time throughout the week.
          • Blocks for 110-minute meetings (“two-hour classes”) have starting times of 8:30, 10:30, 12:30, or 1:30, and meet at the same starting time throughout the week.
          • Blocks for 170-minute meetings (“three-hour classes”) have starting times of 8:30 and 11:30, and meet at the same starting time throughout the week.
        • Classes that meet three times per week at the same time and for the same duration must meet on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
        • If class meets two days a week on MWF priority will be MW. MF and WF will be assigned before classes meeting one day a week.

Additionally,

      • Preference will be given to classes meeting the above criteria and willing to begin at 8:00 or 8:30 am.
      • No department will be allowed more than one class, as available,  at 10:00 am or 10:30 am.
      • Curriculum must meet the features of the room (e.g., software classes requiring laptops have priority for Gould 114).
      • Enrollment limits must fit the size of available rooms.
      • As a quarter approaches room assignments will be reviewed against Time Schedule enrollment with reallocation permitted to reflect actual enrollment.
