Classroom Preparations

Each year, the Academic Technology Council reviews and approves a collection of classroom upgrade projects funded by the University Technology Fund. Project requests are submitted by each school in addition to identified major maintenance/fixes based on the age or current state of each room. These are vetted and prioritized to ensure we are providing stability in the classroom technology while also advancing the technology in as many spaces as possible. In addition to the classrooms funded by the University, several schools or departments fund additional upgrades that are critical to their environment. The majority of these projects are conducted during either the summer months or during winter break to minimize impact to teaching. The following information outlines the projects underway with project schedules and a summary of the work in each space.

The projects and schedules outlined are subject to change due to equipment and scheduling availability.

If you have any questions, please email the IT Help Desk at help@smu.edu.

Project Details

The tentative project schedule is posted next to each room.  We are experiencing issues with the supply chain.  Therefore, the schedule may be adjusted and work may be postponed if we do not receive the required components for the installation.

Planning is underway to remove the various AV equipment from the Cox classrooms in Crow, Fincher and Maguire and relocate that equipment to other locations on campus.    Work will begin as soon as the undergraduate semester concludes.
