This project identified inadequate classrooms at WPI. Students were surveyed on-line to evaluate the conditions of classrooms on campus. Flaws in the existing classroom designs were determined through student/faculty interviews and analysis of the premises. Physical measurements of the air quality, seating, lighting, acoustics, and disabled access were recorded to assess the current state of the classrooms. Substantial design flaws in AK116 and OH107 suggest the renovation of these classrooms would be beneficial to WPI.
