The Duderstadt Center has four conference rooms available for meetings, workhops, etc. These rooms are available to U-M and external groups for academic and student service purposes (for social events, we recommend the Pierpont Commons). To maximize access, these rooms may not be scheduled for regular classes or weekly meetings. A class requiring video conferencing may schedule a conference room for those particular class sessions.
Conference Rooms 2, 3 and 4 are accessible from the Connector Hall, between the Pierpont Commons and the Duderstadt Center Atrium. Conference Room 1180, is entered from the Atrium, to the left of the Connector Hall.
Every room includes a ceiling-mounted projector, screen, wired and wireless Internet access, conference phone and whiteboard. Additional needs can be met, with prior arrangement. For more information see:
