Brown University School of Engineering

Instructional Computer Facility 191

Barus and Holley Room 191 is an instructional computer lab. The procedures for reserving and using the room, as well as the policies to be used in making scheduling decisions are described below.



Capacity:

B&H 191 is an Undergraduate Computer Lab which is always open to undergrads enrolled in courses who need to access course software.
Only one half of the room, 24 seats plus the instructor desk, can be reserved.

  

Equipment:

Barus and Holley 191 includes a projector as well as the appropriate screens and a white board.

Procedures:

To request a reservation of Room 191 for a single event, click on  Calendar, and confirm that the room is available at the time you are requesting.   If the room is available, go back, and click on Reservation Form, fill in the information requested on the form and send. Confirmation is subject to change based on the scheduling guidelines outlined below. 

Rules/Restrictions:

No food or drinks are allowed in Room 191

Room 191 is the primary computer lab for engineering students, so only one half of the space (24 seats) is reservable via the form. This is to prevent conflict with the student use of the space to complete homework assignments during the term. If you have need the entire room, please contact David Mycue to coordinate.

Please be aware that the ability to login to the systems is restricted to engineering students - any other users will not be able to log into the systems and use them, even for such simple purposes as web browsing. If your group will include non-engineering students, please submit a request at least one month in advance for your user list to be added to the access list for the lab.

Please be aware that the set of software available in the lab is fixed two months before the start of each term and is not changed during the term.

Scheduling Guidelines:

As a first step in minimizing scheduling conflicts, users of Room 191 are asked to book only for those times for which there is a very high likelihood that the planned activity will take place and to release the scheduled time as soon as it is known that a scheduled activity will not take place. Secondly, users reserving Room 191 should also understand that there may be times when they will be asked to reschedule or relocate their activity because the room is needed for another activity that is regarded as having higher priority. If scheduling conflicts arise that cannot readily be resolved to the satisfaction of the users involved, then these conflicts will be referred to the Dean of Engineering who, in consultation with the chairs of the departments with competing claims, will make the final decision.
