How to Select a Seat

Seats can be reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis. After the end date, seat assignments are locked to the students; only the instructor may change them.

To select your own seat:

  1. Within your Canvas course, click the SeatGEN link in the side bar of your course menu.

  2. IMPORTANT: If you are in a class that has rotating on-premise sections (RED/BLUE), be sure to select the seating chart for your assigned section. When you click on a chart, you will see them labeled RED SECTION or BLUE SECTION. 1L Students: If you are not sure which section you are in, you can see that information in your Law Directory listing.
