Classroom Access Procedures
With the introduction of Technology-Enhanced Classrooms (TEC) there has been accompanying need for security to protect expensive teaching equipment. The following information applies only to "general purpose" Technology-Enhanced Classrooms (TEC) managed by Classroom Support
*For special event classroom access, instructors and guests of FSU should contact Space & Scheduling (part of the Registrar's Office at 644-1050) while student groups should contact Union Scheduling at (644-8431).
Note: As per University policy, a faculty advisor must be present during the entire time the student group meets and only the faculty advisor may use their FSU card to unlock classroom doors. The University's "No Food and Drink in the Classroom" policy applies to special events as well as normally scheduled class.
Anyone needing access for a special event must get prior approval by providing the following information to Space & Scheduling or Union Scheduling:
If you plan on using the computer in the classroom or any of the audio/visual equipment there you should make sure of the following:
Classrooms are secured by and electronic card swipe system. You may refer to our list of Technology-Enhanced Classrooms with information about the locking system.
It is important that the last user of the room each day verify that all windows are closed and locked and that no one is in the room. Open windows pose a security threat and allow bad weather to damage the room. The last user should turn off the LCD projector (to preserve the life of expensive bulbs). The document camera (when present) should be turned off the the same reason. Then, leave the room and close the door. It is very important that classroom doors are not left propped open or the alarm system will not function properly.
It is everyone's responsibility to ensure that Technology-Enhanced Classrooms are secured from theft and vandalism.
