Classroom Media Services provides service and assistance for NYU classes, defined by an official NYU course number, for almost 200 general-purpose classrooms throughout the NYU campus.
Below are our department policies as related to equipment reservations and technical assistance.
Two-Business Day Notice
In order to best prepare and serve our faculty, we ask for a minimum of two business days notice be given when requesting equipment from Classroom Media Services. While we understand that last-minute changes do occur, we also serve a large campus and faculty and cannot guarantee service without two business days notice.
Due to the high volume of equipment requests, we cannot guarantee the availability of equipment at late notice.
The following items are only available as a pick-up service: laptops (PC & MAC), remote controls, and wireless lavaliere microphones. The faculty or their designee must come to our office located in the basement of the Silver Center Building, Room LL7A. Pick-up equipment requires a department account number.
Department Account Numbers
We require a department account number for the following equipment: laptops, wireless microphones, pick-up video projectors, mp3 recorders, and digital video cameras.
Retain for a Semester (Semester Loan)
We define semester loan as equipment which is picked up by the user at the beginning of the semester and returned at the end of the semester. In this scenario, the user is responsible for the equipment for the duration of the semester.
We offer a limited supply of PC and Mac laptops, remote controls for the DVD/VCR units, wireless lavaliere microphones, and video projectors for semester loan. Equipment which has been loaned out for the semester must be returned no later than the last day of classes for the semester in which it was used.
Faculty, or a designee, can pick-up equipment before every class and return the equipment at the conclusion of every class. Equipment must be returned to our office one hour after class end-time.
Faculty may designate an individual to pick up equipment on their behalf. The Campus Media office is located in the basement of the Silver Building, 100 Washington Square East, room LL7A.
Classroom Media Services offers a limited number of digital video camcorders. We do not provide operators for videotaping of classes.
Faculty Demonstrations & Assistance
Classroom Media Services provides equipment demonstrations for Classroom Media A/V equipment throughout each semester. We also offer training classes before the start of each semester.
