Frequently Asked Questions

Zoom Rooms for Community Use: Shared Spaces Pilot

Are there Zoom Rooms available for use on campus?

During the fall term in 2022 and IAP in 2023, MIT commmunity members may use the MIT Atlas mobile app to reserve and use one of several shared Zoom Rooms distributed across campus. These rooms have been made available as part of the Zoom Rooms for Community Use pilot.

Which rooms are available?

Visit the Spaces feature in the MIT Atlas mobile app to view available rooms. Tap on New Reservation and select a date to view which rooms have availability on that day.

Who may reserve a Zoom Room for Community Use?

Any community member with an active MIT Kerberos account, including students, faculty, staff, and affiliates, may use the MIT Atlas mobile app to reserve a space.

Who manages room availability?

Designated administrators within each room's department manage the overall availability of rooms.

As community members or department administrators reserve meeting times, those times are removed from the room's availability within the Spaces feature in the MIT Atlas mobile app, thus avoiding schedule conflicts.

How does a room's administrator manage room availability?

Designated administrators use the Spaces Administration application to set a room's availability schedule, and to update room details. Day-to-day management of room usage is done through the room's Outlook calendar.

    • does participating in the pilot oblige DLCs to allow their spaces to be reserved by other groups and departments via the associated scheduling system?
    • is there someone who can talk through the AV set-up options with us, so we understand what configuration would work best for our room?
      Thanks!

      Thank you for posting this comment, Elizabeth! We have updated the FAQ with answers to both of your questions.

    We have a number of rooms with large, HDMI-capable displays already, but no cameras, mics, or other video conferencing equipment. Can the extant displays be integrated into a supported Zoom room, or will they need to be replaced as well?
