Classroom AV Support & Equipment Tutorials

For immediate AV assistance in your classroom, contact Audio-Visual Services at 773-834-4499, Monday – Thursday, 8am-7pm and 8am-6pm Fridays during academic quarters; 8am-6pm between quarters.

It can be daunting to teach in a new room with unfamiliar AV equipment. While we are striving to make the AV experience more consistent in our campus classrooms, we are happy to provide a quick orientation to instructors or TAs who are teaching in any of our supported campus classrooms. Email us at avs@uchicago.edu or call 773-834-4499 to make an appointment with one of our AV technicians.

Borrow Audio-Visual Equipment

If you need help setting up technology or choosing from the wide variety of tools, we are available for individual consultations with faculty and teaching assistants. You can borrow and receive a tutorial on audio visual equipment for instructional use if your classroom does not have something specific that you need. The list of equipment available for lending includes a range of projectors, screens, speakers, document cameras, dvd players, cables, and adapters. We also have a range of audio recorders, mixers, cameras, tripods, and microphones available to serve your academic project or event. You can make a reservation by calling 773-834-4499 or emailing avs@uchicago.edu.

Computer Classroom Support

Holding a class or laboratory session where your students need access to computers?  Reserve one of the 3 computer classrooms with us (two with PCs, one with Macs). We prioritize classroom/laboratory use for these spaces, but they are also available for training activities and online exam practice sessions.  Email registrarrooms@lists.uchicago.edu to begin the reservation process. If you have specific software needs for your sessions, please contact us at least two weeks ahead so we can schedule time to install and configure the lab accordingly.
