Equipment Use by Student Organizations
Academic Technology Services provides equipment use for student organizations for screenings in a limited way. For student organizations who want to show a film, the first thing to do is to reserve a classroom with the Room Reservations in Public Affairs: x8269 during the hours of Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Plan ahead! After you receive a room reservation confirmation, contact ATS at 2149, 2908 or 5370 and arrange for a short 5 minute training session on using the equipment in the classroom.
Once trained, you can pick up a key to the video cabinet in the classroom you have reserved from Seeley Mudd room 110 Mon- Fri between 8:30 and 4:30pm. For subsequent screenings, you still have to contact us in advance to arrange to pick up the key.
Please note: if you have not paid the film distributor for public performance rights, it is a violation of copyright law to advertise your film screening in any way other than word-of-mouth within your club.
- ATS cannot reserve a room for you. You must have a room reservation first, then request equipment.
- Get a room reservation confirmation first before calling to reserve equipment. Just because you asked for a specific room, doesn't mean you have it reserved.
- Never assume the audiovisual equipment cabinet or booth in a room will be unlocked, it is best to check with ATS to make sure you have an AV key if you need one.
- You cannot wait until Friday or Saturday night to arrange for a key or access to equipment as there will be no one to help you and you may be left without access.
- Campus Police cannot open audiovisual cabinets or booths.
- You must complete audiovisual equipment training with an ATS staff member in order to get an AV key and have access to equipment.
