Facilities Specifications

IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR FALL SEMESTER 2020:

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, current State and City regulations require 1,000 square feet of accessible space for every 8 attendees, up to the current maximum number of attendees. The maximum number of attendees is 25 at an indoor event and 50 at an outdoor event. For a 25 person event, the room must be at least 3,125 square feet. For a 50 person outdoor event, the area must be at least 6,250 square feet. Capacity for events, meetings, and gatherings is limited more strictly than the capacity for academic use (LfA classrooms).

All meetings, events, and gatherings in locations used as classrooms must use the set-up of the room as is; links to diagrams are included below. Classroom furniture should not be moved within the room to create a different room set-up, nor can it be moved out of the room (regardless of whether there is more furniture than needed).
