Computing and Information Services (CIS) is responsible for providing Audio Visual (AV) equipment in centrally timetabled teaching spaces and meeting rooms throughout the University.

Most centrally timetabled teaching space and meeting rooms in the University benefit from permanently installed AV equipment. Should extra non-standard equipment be required then please make an Audio Visual Equipment Request via the Self-Service Portal.

The IT Service Desk is the initial point of contact for any matter relating to the AV equipment, (Ext: 41515 or via Self Service Portal).

Advice and Training

Although the AV equipment has been installed with ease of use in mind, we realise that individuals or groups of staff may require additional training on the use of the equipment. Training can be requested by contacting the IT Service Desk via Self Service Portal.

No matter how trivial your concerns about use of AV equipment may be, please contact us and we will do our best to resolve such problems/fears.

When using equipment in a centrally timetabled room, please

  • Do not place food or drink near the AV equipment.
  • Do not use permanent board markers or erasers on Whiteboards.
  • Do not tamper with any controls inside the AV cabinet, these are pre-set for optimum performance.
