Find your classroom

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching Excellence (CATE) has partnered with the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services IT (VCAS IT) team and Technology Solutions to provide a robust classroom database created by the Office of Planning, Sustainability and Project Management (PSPM). The database contains attributes for over 180 learning spaces, with 360° pictures, that you can use to understand the features in centrally managed UIC classrooms, and identify the features of your assigned classroom.


If you already know what classroom you are teaching in, filter your results by searching or selecting the building from the dropdown menu and selecting your room number. From the Details view, discover general room information, such as capacity, layout, and photos (if available). The multimedia tab indicates exactly what technology is available in your classroom.
