Nineteen classrooms seat from 15–90 participants at the Gwinnett Campus. Several large classrooms offer the popular case-style seating arrangement with tiered levels and fixed tables. Other classrooms can be setup with or without tables and chairs. All classrooms have touch control, electronic smart-podiums with ceiling mounted projectors and complete electronic peripherals. Classroom technology is available for video-conferencing and digital recording.
Ten meeting rooms are available seating from 4–12 participants, with two rooms offering video-conferencing capabilities.
A large activity room is the perfect setting for a reception, graduation ceremony, guest speaker or classroom. The room offers theater-style seating for 150 or round tables for 96 participants. The electronic technology is the same as in other classrooms. A large built-in buffet provides a location for caterers’ food. Caterers may also use the adjoining kitchen as a staging area for food for events.
Student Group Break-Out Space
Instructors often have students working together on projects and need breakout space for students to work. Students may break out in the public areas, but should not move to other classrooms without reserving space. If a meeting room is open and not scheduled, students may use these spaces as well.
All requests for schedule changes should be made through your departmental contact person and must be entered into the Banner system before a classroom can be reserved for the class. All requests for classroom changes, rescheduling missed or canceled classes, and special event space should be directed to Jill Rhoden, Assistant Director for the Gwinnett Campus: firstname.lastname@example.org or (678) 985-6807.
