To use the Zoom Zone at TUCC, check in at the TUCC Tech Center (Room 404).
What is a Zoom Zone?
A Zoom Zone is a designated room or area inside a Temple academic building where a student or multiple students may use WiFi and physically distanced space in order to attend virtual classes or spend time studying. Classrooms designated as Zoom Zones are marked as such; do not use empty, unmarked classroom space.
Zones are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Once maximum occupancy is reached, students must find another Zone or wait until another student exits a Zoom Zone before entering.
Both individual and group Zones (approximately 5 to 20 physically distanced seats per Zone) will be available, though each has a designated occupancy and fixed seating. Please do not add or remove seats and do not exceed the capacity of the Zone.
How do Zoom Zones work?
All Zoom Zones will have a unique QR code and students must scan in when using a Zoom Zone seat. As the Zones are open access and not based on a reservation system, students will simply scan the QR code so that the system can track usage.
Remember, Zoom Zones are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Here are other important things to consider when making use of a Zoom Zone.
Students attending an online class from a Zoom Zone should communicate to their professor whenever they are using a Zoom Zone. Let your professor know that you’ll be using the chat feature rather than speaking in order to minimize disrupting and distracting others using the space.
Zoom Zones do not have charging stations. Students may, however, use any available power outlets in order to charge their laptops. As these outlets are limited, it is best for all students to fully charge their laptops prior to using a designated Zoom Zone. Please be considerate of others when charging electronics.
Students must bring headphones for use at all times in the Zoom Zone, so as not to disrupt other students who may be using the same Zone.
Much like all classrooms and other buildings on campus, students using a Zoom Zone must adhere to Temple’s four public health pillars. Properly wear a face covering and maintain at least six feet physical distancing. Wash or sanitize your hands before entering and after use, and do not come to campus if you are not feeling well.
