Suffolk University faculty and staff can reserve the following computer classrooms through our office - Sawyer 508, 521 and 522. These computer classrooms are all located on the 5th Flr, Sawyer Building, 8 Ashburton Place, Boston , MA
The following information should be carefully considered before making a request -
- These facilities are available whenever regular classes are NOT scheduled.
- Semester long reservations are initially booked by department staff in coordination with OTM and the Registrar’s office when course schedules are put into the system, normally a year in advance.
- In general, we do not book any reservations in the room until we are a few weeks into the semester as needs change based on faculty teaching styles.
- For courses that need access for one or two sessions, OTM can schedule these based on room availability.
Alert: If the reservation requires special software not already on the computers, we require additional time for acquiring, installing and testing (up to 3 months in advance during the semester)
Note: External organizations or individuals need to be sponsored by a University office or be granted permission to use the facilities by the University Provost’s Office. We will not be able to reserve a room without a written authorization or sponsorship letter from University officials.
