Using A/V Technicians

Please note that you will be charged a technician fee anytime you reserve a space during the academic year that requires an A/V technician for sound, lights, or presentations. A minimum of one hour will be charged, but the A/V Tech must be paid for all of the time that you use. The standard campus community cost for an A/V Tech is $8/hour. During very busy times such as Men's and Women's Recruitment, Welcome Week, Major Madness, Homecoming, etc., the costs rises to $20/hour.


Last minute requests (36 hours or less) for an A/V Technician may result in a service charge of $20/hour. Rates for external groups vary. Summer rates are different for all groups.
