Penn State To Provide ‘Remote Learning Spaces’ For Students

Penn State will convert some on-campuses spaces and classrooms into reserved study spaces for students this fall, the university announced this week.

The areas, referred to as “remote learning spaces,” are designed to give students a place to tune into their remotely instructed classes while still receiving a classroom experience. They’ll go live when classes begin on Monday, August 24.

Students who choose to use these spaces are asked to bring their own headphones and devices, such as laptops or tablets. Seating in remote learning spaces will be configured to promote social distancing, and those in attendance must wear masks at all times.

These remote learning rooms are available in more than 20 buildings around campus, giving students both on and off-campus an opportunity to find a room that is the closest and most convenient to them.

These rooms, which are smaller general-purpose classrooms that could not be scheduled for classes because they did not support social distancing and COVID-19 limited occupancy limits, are open for use during normal building hours and have clear signage indicating that they are intended for accessing remote classes,” Penn State spokesperson Lisa Powers said.

To find a room closest to you, use the Penn State Go app or head over to this link. There, you’ll find each available room, as well as details on the room’s current capacity and requirements.
