General use classrooms at Stanford come in a number of different configurations, most including a flexible audio visual capability. Typically this will include a SmartPanel AV control system, a projector and a pull-down or automatic screen; in some cases, flat screen displays are provided for their enhanced image quality.

We provide a limited number of classrooms with advanced capabilities to support enhanced projection or display, active learning, collaboration and/or group work. To learn more, please visit .

In general, Stanford classrooms come in a few overlapping configurations:

  • Auditoria: capacity of 88 people or more, raked floor, fixed seating
  • Case Study: 40 or more, horseshoe-shaped fixed class seating and tables
  • Flex with SmartPanel: 15 or more, flexible seating and tables, flat floor
  • Lecture with SmartPanel: 40 or more, fixed seating
  • Seminar with SmartPanel: 10 or more, flexible seating around a fixed table

Rooms for scheduled classes are generally arranged with department administrators. As an alternative, members of the university community can request spaces for one-off or recurring events using the 25Live Scheduling System, available at Training and tips for using this system are available at
