Mobile Classroom

The mobile classroom is a transportable cart that consists of 25-30 wireless laptops that can be delivered directly to your classroom for a maximum of four times during the semester.

The mobile classroom is available for classroom use:

Monday - Thursday 9:30 a.m.-8:45 p.m.
Friday 9:30 a.m.-4:15 p.m.

Requests for the mobile classroom must be made one week in advance to allow for proper scheduling, staff availability and updating of the equipment. If computers for your class are needed for more than three times during the semester, we recommend requesting a classroom lab.

The mobile classroom is stored in the Healey Library and must be returned to that location each evening for charging of the batteries. Due to the mobile classroom needing time to recharge (approx. 3-3½ hours), the cart will not be used for classes meeting back to back. Laptop use is a maximum of two hours. If your class is longer than two hours, the mobile classroom is not an option for your class; we recommend you request a classroom lab if available. Requests for the mobile classroom can be made by using the computer lab reservation form, and selecting the option for the mobile classroom, or by contacting the labs via the email Computerlabs@umb.edu

Things to consider when requesting the mobile classroom:

  1. Do you require use of the computers for more than four dates?
  2. Is there an active Ethernet jack available in the classroom?
  3. There is a setup time of ½ hour, is the classroom available ½ hour before your class.

Answers you need to supply when requesting the mobile classroom:

  1. How many laptops do you need for your class?
  2. Where is your class being held?
  3. What day and time is your class?
  4. What is the name of the course?
