Classroom: Davenport Hall 338

Room 338 Davenport Hall is a fixed-desk computer classroom, which enables instructors to present from 2 seperate projectors located on adjoining walls. First priority for full-semester scheduling is given to classes in the Department of Geography, which opted to share the room over ten years ago with other LAS classes.

Background

Room 338 was previously a Geography Department classroom, which they contributed to the pool of ATLAS computer classrooms. Carpet was installed in the summer of 2014, and the wireless projection was added over the winter of 2014-2015. Plans to remodel 338 were put on hold while a master plan for the building was initiated; however, we do hope to make some upgrades to the room sooner.
