Hybrid Room Options: Comparison Chart

Hybrid options

If you are hosting a meeting, class, or event with remote and in-person attendees, you may want to use a hybrid room. There are three hybrid options on campus that can be requested. Below is a chart containing a short overview of each type of space, along with a comparison of features and limitations.

If none of these rooms are available and a hybrid meeting is vital, you can request other audio-visual equipment (microphone, camera, etc.) from IT. This equipment is subject to availability. Contact the IT Support Center at 614-287-5050 or helpdesk@cscc.edu for more information.

***IMPORTANT NOTE***: There are a limited number of hybrid options available on campus. All of the listed rooms are subject to availability and should be requested as far in advance as possible.
