Buildings in Use

All buildings in use for in-person instruction are being modified to ensure social distancing and maintain reduced density. The buildings in use for in-person instruction are as follows:

  • The Dance Building is being used by dance and theatre for in-person instruction. All classes are reduced in density and scheduled so that they can be disinfected and cleaned between meetings.
  • The Music Building is being used by music and film students for limited and altered in person instruction.
  • The PAC will be home to dance and theatre activities and support commuter students who want to access WiFi and relax between classes.
  • The Visual Arts Building is being used extensively to support in-person instruction in all areas of the curriculum.
  • The Neuberger Museum is closed to the public for roof repairs but is being used for class meetings.
  • The Natural Sciences Building will be home to about 35 students doing research and attending in-person courses needed for graduation.
  • The Social Sciences Building’s second floor will be reset for use by Design and Technology for its in-person instruction.

  • The Student Services Building will remain open to students on the first and second floor by appointment only. All services will also be provided remotely.

Computer Lab Availability Maps

CTS has added a new Public Computer Lab Availability map feature, please see the Computer Lab Availability Maps page for more information.

Please note that the lab map information is visible on-campus only. It is a graphical map of a lab that shows availability in real time. Specific computers in the lab are displayed with graphic symbols indicating how many computers are in the lab, the computer name, whether a computer is powered on, and whether a user is currently logged on.

Anyone can look at a page to see how many public computer labs are on campus and whether there are any computers available. It also shows (based on login history) which machines are more likely to be available as well as the software that is deployed either to the entire lab or a single workstation.

  • Alternatively, save to your home directory, USB drive, or email it to yourself.
