Scheduling Polices and Procedures
Room & Course Scheduling in the Office of the Registrar handles scheduling in about 250 rooms across campus known as Centrally Scheduled Classrooms (CSC). The University of Arizona has dedicated these spaces for classes. Events are scheduled in the spaces as availability permits.
To improve classroom utilization, the University of Arizona implemented classroom usage guidelines in Fall 1999. This memo from the Office of the Registrar in support of the Provost's Office policy was distributed to Deans, Department Heads, and Directors in October 1998. If you have any questions about the policy, please contact the Provost's Office.

Please see the basic policy overview below. Read full University of Arizona Centrally Scheduled Classrooms policy and regulations here.
University classrooms are non-public forums, devoted and maintained for the purpose of providing higher education and are not places of public access unless they are reserved as set forth in this Policy, in which case they become limited public forums as defined below.
The University is committed to protecting the free speech rights of students, faculty, staff and invited guests. The purpose of this policy is to respect the dedicated educational purpose of University classrooms while making such space available for expressive activity when not otherwise in use for its dedicated purpose.
The University may regulate the time, place, and manner of free speech and expressive activities in order to prevent unreasonable interference or disruption of its educational, research, outreach and business functions, normal or scheduled uses of University property by the Campus Community, as well as protecting public health, safety and welfare. Commercial Activity is prohibited on campus except as authorized by the Sponsored Commercial Activity on University Property Policy.
