Printing

There are 2 HP 4050N laser printers installed in the TTC. They are located in the rear of the room. Their queue names are "left" and "right." The instructor should request that half the students select the left printer and half the right to share the load between the 2 printers. The instructor should also assure that there is adequate paper in the trays to handle the printing jobs.

Paper and toner for the printers are supplied by SHM, 201 Mateer.

Capabilities

  • Collaborative learning environment by virtue of modular furniture and wireless laptops.
  • A personal laptop can be used in the room. There are podium connections for video and audio. A network port, number 106, is active for accessing the campus network or the Internet. You will need to call our Liaison in SHM for network settings.

Scheduling

As this is a CHHD maintained and controlled facility, departments, schools and centers in CHHD have first priority for reserving the space. If other times are open, outside groups can reserve as needed. You can view the room calendar at this Classroom and Lab Computing website.

Scheduling of the TTC is done by the School of Hospitality Management (SHM) administration office in room 201 Mateer. Call 865-1853 and ask for either Ellie Witherite or Brenda Condo.

Keys

There are multiple keys for this room. You can pick them up in 201 Mateer. Keys are provided to open the door to the room, the doors on the laptop cabinet, the computer peripheral cabinet, and the podium.

There is a deadline listed on the form by which your submission must be received. This deadline is to assure that there are no changes made to the laptops during a semester.
