Departmental classrooms

Departmental classrooms are individually-managed, supported, and scheduled by academic departments at the University of Minnesota. They are designed to meet the specific and more specialized needs of a given department or program. For example, studios, class labs, and special use classrooms are considered departmental classrooms. 

Departments use separate Astra event request forms for requesting classrooms. The following Twin Cities-specific spaces use code 120 in the University Space Management System:

  • Academic Health Center Classroom Services (additional scheduling resources are on the AHC site)

  • Carlson School of Management

  • Dance: Barker & PC Gym only

  • Law School Mondale Hall

  • Theatre: Rarig Only

  • All other departmental rooms that accept Astra event requests
