Please follow the instructions below regarding Equipment Requests for Teaching and Meeting Spaces

  3. After your request has been processed, you will be contacted by Media Services to review details.

If your request does not require a classroom, you can process directly to the Media Service Equipment Request Form (browsing with Internet Explorer recommended for links to a local file).

In addition to Routine and Special Equipment Requests, Media Services may be contacted for accessories.  Accessories such as video tapes, audio tapes, flip chart paper and markers can be purchased through the Bookstore. You may want to call ahead for availability.

Student Workers

Media Services relies on student workers to perform many of the duties associated with the department. Student workers have a "window" of only ten minutes between classes (excluding special events which are a constant occurrence on campus) to accomplish the difficult task of assuring that all requests are met. Media student workers are trained to handle routine requests only.

Student workers with specific training may be available to assist in some special events. In some instances, charges will be incurred for special requests. At least TWO WEEKS NOTICE MUST BE GIVEN and arrangements must be made directly through Media Services.
