University Park Partitions

Partitions are sections of campus buildings that are used by the Office of the University Registrar to schedule classrooms during the Optimizer process. Each subject is able to pick one primary partition and multiple secondary partitions as suggestions for the Optimizer run, at which time the system will try to find a room for those subjects. Partition selection for each subject stays in place until a change is requested by the department or college.
