Technology Support

The Audio Visual Staff offers technical assistance to our College clients who request help. Help is available at three levels.

  • Users of AV equipment can receive instruction from AV staff on how to operate items of equipment.
    • Certain equipment, such as portable sound systems, must be operated by AV staff.
  • Users can request an AV staff member to provide support for their event. The staff member will provide equipment set up, operation, and tear-down services. Request for AV staff assistance must be received at least 14 days before the scheduled event. This allows time to arrange for staff member availability, and equipment availability, as well as to ensure all requests are tracked appropriately. Events may be arranged by submitting the form below.
  • At times users experience difficulty with technology due to malfunction. These incidents may be reported directly to AV via email to


Audio Visual equipment is available for checkout to all college employees.

Students may check out equipment with faculty approval.
