Equipment Reservations

Academic Technologies offers audiovisual equipment for short-term and long-term reservation in support of credit-generating courses and special events scheduled in campus facilities. Equipment availability, reservation length, and pricing is dependent on individual eligibility and intended use.

Do I need to make an equipment reservation?

In most cases you do not need to make an equipment reservation. Campus classrooms and event venues are commonly equipped with the technology necessary to facilitate daily instruction and special presentations. We highly encourage classroom users to visit their assigned room in advance, or view our Classroom Features page, to determine whether or not an equipment reservation is necessary. If you do not see your assigned room listed, we suggest reaching out to your Venue Operator with questions regarding equipment availability.

Who may make an equipment reservation?

  • Faculty, staff, and teaching assistants of UW academic and administrative units
  • Officers of Registered Student Organizations (RSOs)
  • Members of the general public using campus facilities
