The Duderstadt Center has four conference rooms available for meetings, workshops, etc. These rooms are available to U-M 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 Room A, B & D
Conference Rooms A and B each seat up to 9 people and are equipped with 80” HD displays and high delity audio systems. A touchscreen controller can be used to switch between video and audio sources including an in-room computer, a user-provided laptop, and a dedicated Apple TV with Airplay connectivity. The in-room computers?are capable of running both the Mac and Windows operating systems and come loaded with the complete Digital Media Commons software loadset. Each room has built-in microphones and an HD conference camera, which may be used with the in- room computer’s teleconferencing software such as Blue Jeans, Skype, or Google Hangouts.
Conference Room D provides the same technical capabilities as Conference Rooms A and B and space for up to 14 people. This room is attached to a small kitchen with a refrigerator and microwave.
