Class Facility Usage

This is a tutorial for class scheduling staff only. No log in is required.


This guide reviews how CSUN staff granted security access to the Schedule of Classes (SOC) view class sections assigned to a facility.

The Class Facility Usage component is always available as a tool to resolve room conflicts except for large lecture space facilities. Contact Room Reservations for questions about large lecture space facilities.

Note: Department coordinators can assign rooms to class sections at any time before the close of the chair's final review period. After that, follow the procedures established by your dean's office for assigning rooms. Questions? Contact your College SOC Coordinator.
