Audiovisuals - Engineering Conference Room Support Details & Limitations

The Engineering IT Service Desk offers basic conference room setup and support for Engineering, Physics, and Mathematics buildings (detailed below).

Support Details:

  • Demonstrate the operation of the equipment prior to the meeting.
  • Available at the beginning of a meeting or conference to help ensure a smooth start.
  • Provide as needed support if there are issues.  Call us at 301-405-1634.
  • Escalate major issues to the appropriate Engineering AV or Facilities team as necessary.
  • Scheduling for most Engineering spaces can be found at ClarkNet or Booked; you can read more at this article.
  • Engineering Computer Labs are supported by the EIT Service Desk. Please reach out to eit-help@umd.edu for assistance with the Computer Labs. 
  • During Spring 2024, if you need assistance in JMP 3201 or KEB 1110, please continue to reach out to eit-help@umd.edu. 
  • For all other General Purpose Classrooms (teaching classrooms), please reach out to Classroom Support. You can find more information on their website

Support Limitations:

  • We are not staffed to sit in for entire meetings or conferences. If you run into issues after a meeting begins, call us at 301-405-1634. We will make every effort to arrive in under ten minutes, depending on the location of the meeting.
  • Some rooms are equipped with a variety of video adapters for laptops, however if you are unsure, please bring your own or plan ahead by opening a ticket with the Service Desk two days prior to your meeting at eit-help@umd.edu; we may have limited availability for adapter checkouts. 
  • If you need support beyond what we can provide (special audio or video setups, someone to be there to adjust audio levels throughout the meeting, etc.), UMD has a good relationship with Metro Tech (contact information below) which can provide additional services for a fee.
