Students study at one of the many technology hotspots in the School.

Our School has numerous spaces in which faculty, staff, students and others may host classes, seminars, meetings and other events or programs. We also provide audiovisual and other teaching and event support services.  Review the Gillings School Guidelines for reserving rooms and utilizing event spaces in the school.

The Office of Student Affairs will confirm all requests and send a confirmation. Same day requests are no longer accepted. You must book your room 1-2 business days in advance. Requests for meetings, events, or programs will not be confirmed until classes have been scheduled for that semester (April 15 for fall semester reservations and November 15 for spring semester reservations). Also note that department conference rooms must be confirmed via the appropriate department.  Reservation requests are not processed during the winter break and will resume after January 2nd.

Course Change Request Form

The Office of Student Affairs will use a Course Scheduling process to strategically assign classrooms each semester, you may review the Course Scheduling Timeline if needed. Instructors may request a classroom change if the room assigned for their course does not accommodate their class size or technology needs. The Office of Student Affairs cannot guarantee the request can be processed, as this depends on room availability. Change requests submitted after semester deadlines may not be processed due to the lack of room availability and will only be considered for students with ARS challenges.

Currently course scheduling for the upcoming semester has been completed and all requests submitted after November 15th, 2017 may not be accommodated. If you need to request a classroom change, please email the Director of Student Services at to make your request.

Please contact the Office of Student Affairs if you have any additional questions at (919) 966-2499.
