New QR code check-in, check-out, and seat assignment process

To check-in/out and receive your seat assignment you will be required to do the following:

  1. Present your Daily COVID-19 Screener and NYU ID to enter the building.
  2. Use your mobile device’s camera to scan the QR code by the entrance of the reserved room/space to check in and get your seat assignment
  3. Upon leaving your space, scan the check-out QR code to prevent inaccurate contact tracing and free the seat for other students.

Rules and Etiquette for Reserved Spaces

Seat Reservation Etiquette

  • You must reserve a seat in Remote Learning or Study spaces and claim a seat in Quick Stop spaces.  Make sure to use only the seat you have reserved to avoid confusion with other students
  • If you do not intend to use your reservation, please cancel it so that the seat is available to another student
  • If you have an asynchronous course or a synchronous course in which you are not expected to actively participate (such as a lecture), please reserve a Study Space or Quick Stop seat in order to preserve Remote Learning Space seats for students who need to participate in class

Space occupancy rules

  • All NYU health and safety protocols apply in all of the spaces listed above, including the requirement to wear a mask at all times and maintain safe social distancing; entry will require authorization through the NYU Daily Health Screener
  • No eating or drinking in any reserved seating area with the exception of Quick Stop spaces (please only remove your mask while eating or drinking)
  • While you may fully participate by speaking in a Remote Learning space, you must use headphones, earbuds, or some device other than your computer’s speaker.  Please be mindful of your speaking volume
