Faculty and staff can reserve a classroom, pods space and study rooms for teaching a course, instructor-students meetings, departmental meetings or space for work.
Classrooms & Class Structure
There are three (3) classrooms in the ACCelerator; CR-1101, CR-1201 and CR-1202.

- CR-1101 has 36 seats with a computer projector. Note: CR-1101 is designated as the Special Events/Workshop room. CR-1101 can be used for class but there are restriction and flexibility issues.
