Efforts to modernize and maintain these spaces have been recognized and well-received by the student body. While the majority of the feedback is promising, there remain areas of concern that, when addressed, will further elevate the on-campus learning experience.

The following graph shows the evolution of the perceived availability and condition of classrooms and lecture halls, with a score over 0 meaning a majority of positive comments in the feedback data:

Positive Developments:

Technological Upgrades: Classrooms equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and interactive boards have enhanced the teaching and learning process.

Increased Number of Spaces: The addition of new lecture halls and classrooms has alleviated scheduling conflicts and accommodated the growing student population.

Insufficient Seating: Despite the increased number of spaces, peak class hours sometimes saw students without adequate seating.

Aging Infrastructure: A few older classrooms and lecture halls were noted to have outdated infrastructure, including worn-out seats, poor lighting, or outdated equipment.


Audit the existing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, ensuring comfortable and consistent temperatures across all academic spaces.

Enhance accessibility by ensuring ramps, elevators, and other facilities cater to students with varying needs.

Consider a dynamic scheduling system that takes into account class sizes and room capacities, ensuring optimal space utilization.

Prioritize the refurbishment of older lecture halls, focusing on seating, lighting, and technology upgrades.

In conclusion, while significant progress has been made in improving the quality and availability of classrooms and lecture halls, there's room for continuous enhancement. By ensuring that every academic space is comfortable, accessible, and well-equipped, we can further support and enrich the educational journey of every student.
