Room Scheduling Policies

  • The Registrar's Office communicates with academic departments regarding scheduling deadlines for each term.
  • Departments that submit scheduling requests accurately, on-time, and within the standard scheduling meeting patterns will receive a higher priority for classroom assignments. Class sections submitted past the deadline or scheduled with non-standard meeting patterns will receive the lowest priority.
  • Class sections that do not have a room assignment in Albert will be listed as "tentative" and will not display in the Class Search.
    • Once a room is assigned, the class section will be made active and will display.
  • Periodically before the term start date, the Registrar may send lists to the schools of zero or low-enrolled classes assigned classrooms for departmental review to determine if the class will still be offered.
    • Any class section with zero enrollment after the drop/add period is subject to having their Registrar-scheduled room assignment removed from the class section in Albert.
  • NYU is dedicated to supporting the accessibility needs of our faculty.  Department administrators responsible for class schedule data-entry may flag a class with the "Faculty Accommodation" class characteristic in Albert.  This characteristic will prompt the Office of the Registrar to contact the department to gather additional details regarding an appropriate classroom assignment and/or accommodation.  Instructors may also contact the Registrar to privately explain the necessary accommodations by emailing
