Request a consult for using Zoom for a class or in a classroom or computer lab


Zoom can be used by faculty and staff in a variety of different ways and locations. One use of Zoom is in a classroom setting to allow external guests an opportunity to present or have a discussion with a class or small group. Zoom can also be used to hold small group interviews or discussions in a conference room or other meeting space. Some of these setups and configurations could be confusing. You can make a request to Information Technology's Client Services team to assist with an introductory lesson on how to setup and use Zoom in the space you plan on using.

Any faculty or staff member may request a Zoom consult for a classroom or lab. 

Ideal Zoom Classroom Locations

While Information Technology does supply simple webcams in most classrooms, not every classroom is ideally equipped to hold a Zoom or other web tool meeting. We highly encourage that you request a consult well in advance of a potential meeting so there's time to make adjustments if necessary.

Some locations that are well suited for a Zoom meeting based on higher-quality camera and integrated microphones include:

  • Hawthorne-Longfellow Basement, Telepresence Room
  • Hawthorne-Longfellow Basement, Screening Room
  • Roux Center, Room 207 North, South or combined
  • Roux Center, Room 212 Conference Room
  • Roux Center, Room 232 Conference Room
