THE PURPOSE OF THE TEAM AND COLLABORATION ROOMS
It is assumed that the use of any Marshall University Facility is solely for the purpose of furthering the mission of the University in the areas of instruction, research, community service, and economic development. These rooms were designed specifically to facilitate this requirement by providing locations for small (2 individuals), medium (3 to 4 individuals), and large (5 to 10 individuals) groups to meet, study, and collaborate locally or with remote individuals or groups via a teleconference medium. These facilities were designed principally to accommodate ad-hoc needs and were intended to be scheduled for repetitive meetings or classes only when the technologies in these rooms are constantly required.

USE OF THE TEAM AND COLLABORATION ROOMS
The rooms will be scheduled for small (study room), medium (team room), or large (collaboration room) group use only.
Student, Faculty, and Staff use of these facilities for activities directly related to the mission of the University takes precedence over other requests for use.
Needs for the collaboration or teleconference equipment augmentation will take precedence over an unaugmented "meeting" or study group.
The rooms will be scheduled only in 2 hour blocks. A reservation request may contain requests for no more than 2 blocks (4 hours) in a 2 week period no more than a month in advance. The rooms may be used by small or medium groups on a first come first served basis if the room is unscheduled and unoccupied for any 2 hour block. Single individuals will please relinquish rooms for group use.
Rooms will be assigned based on group size and equipment needs (i.e., requests for specific space may not be honored in order to more efficiently use the spaces).
Requests for recurring reservations will be considered by the Information Technology Management group in consultation with the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Criterion for consideration include:
Size of Group, constituency, and purpose as it relates to the University mission
Need for consistant and continual use of collaboration or telecommunications augmentation
Demand for these facilities.
