Limitations

210 Class Laboratory, Dry (Regularly Scheduled)

A room used primarily for formally or regularly scheduled classes that require special purpose equipment or a specific space configuration for student participation, experimentation, observation, or practice in an academic discipline. A space is considered scheduled if the activities generate weekly student contact hours, the activities fulfill course requirements, and/or there is a formal convener present. Neither water nor a fume hood is present within the room

Class laboratories designed for or furnished with equipment to serve the needs of a particular discipline for group instruction in formally or regularly scheduled classes. This special equipment normally limits or precludes the space’s use by other disciplines. Included are spaces generally called teaching laboratories, instructional shops, computer laboratories, drafting rooms, band rooms, choral rooms, (group) music practice rooms, language laboratories, (group) studios, theater stage areas used primarily for instruction, instructional health laboratories, and similar specially designed or equipped rooms, if they are used primarily for group instruction in formally or regularly scheduled classes. Computer rooms used primarily to

instruct students in the use of computers are classified as class laboratories if that instruction is

conducted primarily in formally or regularly  scheduled classes.

Does not include classrooms (110). Does not include informally scheduled or unscheduled laboratories (see open class laboratory, 220). Does not include spaces generally defined as research/non-class laboratories (250). Does not include gymnasia, pools, drill halls, laboratory schools, demonstration houses, and similar facilities that are included under special use facilities (code 500 series). Computer rooms in libraries or used primarily for study should be classified as study rooms (410)

212 Class Laboratory, Wet (Regularly Scheduled)

A room used primarily for formally or regularly scheduled classes that require special purpose equipment or a specific space configuration for student participation, experimentation, observation, or practice in an academic discipline. A space is considered scheduled if the activities generate weekly student contact hours, the activities fulfill course requirements, and/or there is a formal convener present. Water and/or one or more fume hoods is/are available within the room to serve the function of the room.

See the Includes description for 210, Class Laboratory, Dry. The primary distinction here is the presence of water and/or a fume hood within the room.

See the Limitations/Comments for 210, Class Laboratory, Dry.

215 Class Laboratory Service, Dry, Service

A room that directly serves one or more "dry" class laboratories as an extension of the activities.

Any space that directly serves a dry class laboratory. Included are projection rooms, telecommunications control booths, coatrooms, preparation rooms, closets, material storage (including temporary hazardous materials storage), balance rooms, cold rooms, stockrooms, darkrooms, equipment issue rooms, etc., if they serve regularly scheduled, dry class laboratories.

Does not include service spaces that support a classroom (see 115), open class laboratory (see 225), or a research/non-class laboratory (see 255). Animal (570) and greenhouse (580) facilities are categorized separately

217 Class Laboratory, Wet, Service

A room that directly serves one or more "wet" class laboratories as an extension of the activities in those spaces.

Any space that directly serves a wet class laboratory. Includes projection rooms, telecommunications control booths, coatrooms, preparation rooms, closets, material storage (including temporary hazardous materials storage), balance rooms, cold rooms, stockrooms, darkrooms, equipment issue rooms, etc., if they serve regularly scheduled, wet class laboratories.

Does not include service spaces that support a classroom (see 115), open class laboratory (see 225), or a research/non-class laboratory (255). Animal (570) and greenhouse (580) facilities are categorized separately

220 Open Class Laboratory (Irregularly Scheduled)

A laboratory used primarily for group instruction in experimentation, observation, or practice in a field of study. The laboratory is informally scheduled, unscheduled, or open.

Laboratories designed for or furnished

with equipment that serves the needs

of a particular discipline or discipline

group for group instruction, where (1)

use of the space is not formally or

regularly scheduled, or (2) access is limited to specific groups of students.

Included in this category are music

practice rooms, language laboratories,

and other special laboratories or

learning laboratories (e.g., speech,

hearing, law, psychology, and health related

professions) if discipline

restricted, individual laboratories, and

computer laboratories involving

specialized restrictive software or

where access is limited to specific

categories of students. For example, a

computer laboratory with only

engineering or CAD software, or a

computer-based writing laboratory

available only to English Composition

students would be classified as an

open laboratory because of the

restricted usage of the space for a

particular discipline or discipline group.

Laboratories with formally or regularly scheduled classes are classified as a class laboratory, dry (210) or class laboratory, wet (212). This category also does not include spaces defined as research/non-class laboratory (250). A space that contains equipment (e.g.,

computers), that does not restrict use to a

specific discipline or discipline group and

is typically used at a student’s

convenience, should be classified as a

study room (410). Instructional

laboratories designed primarily for

individual (vs. group) study or practice

should be coded as individual study

laboratories (230).

Included are projection rooms, telecommunications control booths, coatrooms, preparation rooms, closets, material storage (including temporary hazardous materials storage), balance rooms, cold rooms, stockrooms, darkrooms, equipment issue rooms, and similar facilities if they serve open class laboratories.

Does not include service spaces that support a classroom (see 115), class laboratory (see 215 or 217), or research/non-class laboratory (see 255). Animal (570) and greenhouse (580) facilities are categorized separately.

230 Individual Study Laboratory

A laboratory used primarily for individual student experimentation, observation, or practice in a particular field of study. The space is informally scheduled, unscheduled, or open.

Music practice rooms, individual study laboratories, sound booths used in language learning, and similar rooms that serve a particular field of study area and are intended for individual use.

Does not include individual study facilities that are intended for general purposes. Study areas not related to a specific area of study are classified as study facilities.
