When you need to project a presentation, show a video, amplify the voice of a speaker, we can help. Media Services will deliver, set up, and serve as operators of equipment if needed.
How to Request Media Set-up
Faculty, staff and students may request a set-up for Audio-Visual Equipment/Media such as: Computers, Laser Pointers, Microphones, Monitors, Projectors, PA Systems, Screens, Stands, etc.
- Send requests via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is the best way to be sure your media requests are set-up accurately.

- Stop by the Media Desk on the first floor of the Upjohn Library Commons, to the left of the grand staircase.
- Add equipment to an existing room reservation online via the Facilities Calendar.
What to Include
Give us as much information as possible about your class, meeting, and/or event so that we can make certain to provide the correct media set-up for you.
When to Make Your Request
- Please make your request at least 24 hours in advance.
- Media requests for set-up or take-down after 5pm on weekdays must be submitted before NOON of that day.
- Media requests for events occurring Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday must be submitted by NOON on Friday.

Using the Equipment
If you would like to use the classroom equipment on your own, the following video will walk you through the steps to operate the teaching stations in the rooms across campus. If you would prefer a personal walkthrough we'd be happy to set up an appointment.
Students, do not assume that your instructor has already made arrangements to have the media equipment available to you for a class presentation. If you need to have Media Services support for a presentation or project, please let us know!
Borrow Portable Equipment
Portable Equipment must be checked out from the Media Desk. Terms of loan may vary depending on the availability or popularity of an item. Large portable equipment, such as a Portable PA System, for use after Media Services business hours must be picked up before 4:00 pm the day of use and is due back to Media Services before noon the next business day. For weekend use, equipment should be picked up before 4:00 pm on Friday and returned Monday before noon. Borrowers are responsible for all equipment checked out in their name.
