COMM Lab (CLOSED)

Location: Alkek Library 3rd Floor
Rooms: 304 (CURRENTLY CLOSED)
Capacity: Due to COVID-19 Social Distancing requirements, no more than two people may use this room at a time.
Reservable: We are currently not taking reservations for these rooms as they are closed until further notice. Normally, students wishing to make an appointment for a critiqued presentation through the Communications Studies program should make an appointment. 

This room can also normally be reserved for up to two 1-hour sessions to practice your presentation without formal evaluation or for collaborating with your study group or project team. You must show check in with 15 minutes of your reservation start time using the room tablet outside the door or you forfeit you reservation and other groups will be allowed to use the room. You can also make an immediate one-hour reservation of a room not already reserved or in use using the room tablet. 

Use Guidelines: All group study rooms are intended for use by students and faculty who need to meet with a group to study or work on projects. These rooms are not to be used for office hours or instructional support. Reservations can be made up to 30 days prior to use using the online EMS room reservation system prior. These rooms are not soundproof, so noise levels must be kept to a minimum. Groups who become loud and boisterous risk being asked to forfeit their reservation and leave the library.

Includes:

  • Computer
  • Document Camera
  • Podium
  • Large shared monitor
  • 3 HDMI connection cables
  • 1 VGA connection cable

This room is a great place to practice delivering your presentation. Students experiencing communication apprehension or "stage fright" can make an appointment with a trained presentation coach through the Communications Studies department. Those appointments are made by the Comm Studies staff and are not available through the library's reservation system. Reservations for room 304 can be made for up to two-hour sessions through the library's reservation system for use as a general collaboration room when not blocked for coaching sessions.
