Ithaca Breakout Rooms

Teamwork is an essential component of graduate business education. Your technical skills might get you in the door to your dream employer, but your ability to lead and motivate high-performing, diverse teams is what will accelerate your career progression. To this end, Sage Hall and Breazzano are equipped with breakout rooms to easily facilitate academic and co-curricular group work.

Breakout Room Policies

Breakout rooms are to be used for academic teamwork and study groups; group work associated with Johnson co-curricular and/or extracurricular activities; and, in-person, phone, and/or video interviews with corporate recruiters where a student does not have another private location.  Breakout rooms should not be used for individual study.

Breakout rooms are for the exclusive use of Johnson Graduate School of Management MBA and MPS in Management students, with limited use by Baker Real Estate graduate students. Johnson MPS Management students can book all breakout rooms in Breazzano; Baker students can only book the Breazzano LL breakout rooms. Johnson MBA students can book Sage Hall breakout rooms and Breazzano breakout rooms on the second and third floors.


Breakout rooms may be booked up to 7 days in advance.

  • Use Outlook calendar to make a reservation; instructions are available on the Johnson Launchpad.
  • Book only 4 hours at a time; it is against school policy to make concurrent or consecutive bookings. Any student doing so risks cancellation of their reservations and could have their breakout room privileges revoked.
  • Reservations take precedence over walk-ins.


All breakout rooms are equipped with flat screen TVs. Most connections are wireless. For the few that require HDMI connection, you can check out an adapter from Tech Services in Sage Hall 203 if you need one. Additionally, Sage breakouts B02, B37, 211, 212, 213, 215, 217, and 242 are now equipped with Zoom and H.323 videoconferencing. Find instructions on the Johnson Launchpad.
