Classrooms and Labs

Please check your rooms and make requests in advance of the need. If you need some additional equipment for a special instructional purpose, you can use the Media & Video Services Request Form to identify and request individual pieces of equipment, or write us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your needs. Please make requests at least 1-2 days prior to the day you need the equipment.
All event requests are handled on a first-come/first-serve basis. Service is not guaranteed without prior notice. We require a minimum 5 business days notice for most events, longer for larger and more complex events.
Email: email@example.com to schedule an event. You will receive a confirmation email If you do not make a request and receive a confirmation, your event is not confirmed.
Note: All special events and filming requests require advance notice. Requests to facilities for room location do not provide or guarantee media or video services. All requests for media or video support need to be made through the Media and Video Services office with enough notice to adequately plan for the event needs and allocate personnel. Any applicable charges will be discussed at time of planning, but you can refer to the following Service Request and Fees Guidelines (PDF) to get an idea of what your event may cost.
