    Does anyone do this? My room is a very odd shape ,so I would need to have about 2-3 U's within each other. Thoughts?

    This is how I arrange my desks. I have 29 desks, 1 large U of 20 desks and a smaller U inside of 9 desks. I love, love love it. However, I had a large problem with cheating (high school), so I did have to make adjustments to how I quiz/test.

    The U-shape one of my favorite configurations. I can fit 18 students in a U-shape in my room. If I have more than 18 students, I put desks in the middle, perpendicular to the sides of the U because if I make a middle U, it usually becomes a table because of the way the desks shift.

    I had a u shape last year and loved it, but I am going to be adding around 5 desks to my configuration and I don't think it will work out well. I love a big U, because it lets me travel the classroom very easily.

    I have sort of a U shape. It's actually more like a square, with open corners for walking in/out. My room isn't long enough to fit the front row of the square on the sides of the U instead. Regardless, I love it!
