For Student Organizations
The Event & Conference Services Office hires and trains a group of Drexel University students to assist with audio visual support for University City Main Campus events. Any organization that has an event on the University City Main Campus can utilize this audio-visual support service at a fraction of the cost of hiring an external sound company.
How do I request support?
- First, you must be sure to reserve your event space with the Event & Conference Services Office.
- Submit the Audio-Visual Support Request Form [PDF] to the Event & Conference Services Office ten (10) business days prior to the proposed event. This is to ensure sufficient processing time for the services needed. Requests submitted five (5) business days or less, will be assessed a service fee or may not be accommodated.
- Contact the Technical Operation Manager at 215-895-1330 two (2) days prior to your event to confirm arrangements.
NOTE: audio-visual requests are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis as equipment and technicians are available.
Can I do it myself?
Student organizations who wish to support their event’s audio-visual needs on their own may do so by securing projectors through the Student Organization Resource Center and projection screens through Instructional Media Services. Organizations may also secure a Do-It-Yourself sound system through the Event & Conference Services Office by completing the Audio-Visual Support Request form. Please note that systems are limited and are assigned on a first come first served basis.
Why Should I use Event Services Audio-Visual Support?
The combination of the members' professionalism and our modern equipment make the Event & Conference Services Audio Support a respected group on the university campus. Most importantly, the technicians are less expensive than an outside company, but they still provide the excellent service and results of a professional sound company.
How much will this service cost?
The Event & Conference Services Office provides affordable packages to meet the needs of most campus events. For special event needs, a consultation with the Manager of Technical Operations will be needed and a cost estimate can be provided. Package rates are for equipment only and do not include the required technicians needed to support each package. For more information, please contact our Manager of Technical Operations at 215.895.1330.
