Common Issues
I’ve logged into Google Classroom and it says I am unable to access the classroom or the room isn’t available.

A common issue is that many browsers will store a users login information. If the browser has previously signed into a Google account, it will automatically log into Google Classroom with that information. If a non-school user is signed in you cannot access the classrooms due to security.
To work around this issue you will need to either sign out of your personal Google account on Chrome, use an in-private window or download and install another browser on your computer such as Firefox or Microsoft Edge (Windows) and use this specifically for your home learning. 

If you are accessing via a mobile device, you will probably need to sign out of any personal accounts on the device web browsers, or use an in-private browsing session.
