Are there places on campus where I can access my synchronous remote classes without having to return to my room or leave campus?

Yes, there are places on campus for this purpose.

In addition to the normal student spaces that have had seating adjusted to account for physical distancing, dozens of smaller classrooms have been identified on the University Park campus as Remote Learning Rooms. These rooms are open for use during normal building hours and have clear signage indicating that they are intended for accessing remote classes. The rooms do not have computers available for student use, so you will need to bring your own technology. Please wear headphones so you do not distract others. If you are talking as part of class participation, be aware of your speaking volume and consider using headphones with a microphone.

You can find details by selecting the Remote Learning Rooms layer on the campus map or on the Penn State Go app. Clicking on the Remote Learning icon (headphones) will provide detailed information for each building.
