Standard Instructional Furniture
Standard furniture in lecture rooms includes: instructor table, instructor chair, lectern, ADA table, ADA chair, tablet arm chairs and/or tables and chairs. If instructional furniture is damaged or missing from classrooms, notice should be sent to Space Management at (916) 278-6507 or firstname.lastname@example.org to correct the problem as soon as possible. All work orders to add, remove or modify instructional furniture in lecture rooms need to be approved and submitted by Space Management. Furniture information for classrooms is available to view via Astra Schedule (View Rooms Menu).
Report Furniture Problems
It is common for furniture to move from classrooms during the first few weeks of the term. The best way to help keep the furniture stay in classrooms is to NOT move it and to encourage others (students, staff and faculty) to not move furniture as well. "Do Not Remove Furniture" signs should be visible in all classrooms. If the furniture seat count is incorrect in a classroom or if there is a furniture safety issue, please notify Space Management at (916) 278-6507 or email@example.com. The seat count in classrooms includes the ADA chair. Space Management will coordinate with Facilities Services to correct the seat count or safety issue as quickly as possible for any classroom issues that are reported. Please note that a semi-annual instructional furniture inventory and safety audit is coordinated with Space Management and Facilities Services staff in the summer and winter months.
Request ADA Furniture
Students that need additional ADA furniture or adjustments to existing ADA furniture in classrooms should contact the Services to Students with Disabilities Office (SSWD). SSWD will contact Space Management to coordinate all ADA furniture needs.
Annual Call for Lab Furniture Audit and Request to Purchase
Space Management requests an annual laboratory furniture audit from colleges and departments generally in December with response by late January. If the University budget allows, Space Management will coordinate with academic departments to determine furniture needs and priorities and purchase items for instructional laboratories and special facilities up to a specific funded amount. Furniture purchases are typically made from April-May so furniture deliveries with vendors and the academic departments can be accommodated over the summer.
