This paper constructs a statistical model that measures the ability of a given mix of classroom sizes to accommodate student demand for courses. Assuming known demand distributions, the model computes the probability that a course-to-classroom assignment can be made in such a way that the number of students assigned to any classroom does not exceed the number of seats in that classroom.
