AVS provides equipment and training on equipment at no cost for undergraduate courses, provided that the equipment complements or enhances the lecture during the scheduled class time. Please note that AVS charges a fee for equipment used for purposes other than undergraduate instruction.
All requests for equipment and services require a Financial Service Number (aka Department Code) and a Departmental Recharge ID. This information is used for booking purposes, even if there is no charge. Some departments have requested that only authorized staff be allowed to place orders – please check with your department to see if they have that policy.
If you wish to use AVS equipment or services and you are not with a UCLA department, such as a registered student group or an outside organization, then you can contact the UCLA Events Office to see if they can make a reservation for you. UCLA Events can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
