The Basics

How much lead time is needed?

A minimum of two days’ notice is suggested in order to avoid scheduling conflicts for space and resources.

Is there a charge?

A/V support, including equipment use, is paid for indirectly through course registration fees and general administrative overhead. Occasionally, purchases made for specific programs or grants will need to be charged back to that program; this process will be managed through the School’s Business and Finance Division.

Does the school offer this service to outside clients?

A/V support services are available to outside organizations using space in the Knapp-Sanders Building. The Registration and Support Services Division maintains a list of services and associated charges that can be shared with these organizations. The School does not generally rent its equipment or provide services for outside events held off campus.

The Process

1. Request A/V equipment and room arangements through the school's Events Calendar.
2. Check A/V and room arrangements prior to the event.

Getting Started

Requests for A/V and room arrangements are made through the School’s events calendar, available via the home page at
