Event/Activity Services

The systems in our classrooms are intended to be self-service systems. If you would like to know what is available in each classroom, visit http://rooms.tlst.rice.edu/ and search for the classroom you plan to use. We do not reserve classrooms; this is handled by the Office of the Registrar via the following link: http://registrar.rice.edu/classrooms/.

For a video tutorial of our systems, visit http://edtech.rice.edu/how-to-videos/ and select the videos in the Using the Podiums section.
