Return of furniture scheduled for campus classrooms, academic spaces

From: Academic Resource Management

As the university continues its preparations for a fully in-person fall 2021 semester, the Academic Space team in the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost has begun the process of bringing classroom furniture back to the campus. In coordination with personnel from housekeeping, university facilities, registrar's office, and parking services, furniture for classrooms not being used for the spring semester or summer sessions is currently being returned to academic spaces, with the remainder coming back in May, June and July.

In an effort to adhere to physical distancing guidelines due to the COVID-19 pandemic, approximately 6,500 pieces of furniture had been removed from classrooms, atriums and common areas around the campus. The removal helped reduce the number of seats in a classroom space in order to create a six-foot, nose-to-nose distance between the students and professors that is safe for in-person activities.

Furniture return is scheduled for the week of May 17 for the following spaces:

  • Burruss Hall
