Technology-Enhanced Learning Spaces

Technology enhanced learning spaces at Northwestern foster opportunities for teaching and learning by integrating learning technology, such as computers, specialized software, assistive listening devices, networking, and audio/visual capabilities. These spaces are available to the University community and require a reservation prior to use.

Northwestern Information Technology Academic & Research Technologies provides services for over one hundred technology-enhanced learning spaces directly controlled by the Office of the Registrar on the Evanston campus and several more contracted by specific University schools and departments on the Evanston and Chicago campuses. Services for these spaces include user training and orientation, computer and classroom control system oversight and maintenance, and immediate response for urgent requests.

All technology-enhanced learning spaces support video projection from a laptop. Some rooms contain resident computers.
