Requesting AV support after business hours
Multimedia team provides audio-visual and classroom technology support for centers, programs, departments, and student organizations at the Law School during business hours, Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., and when classes are not in session, Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Staff may be available to provide AV support during off-hours and weekends. All requests must be coordinated with Multimedia team at least 10 full business days in advance.
Please note that while we try to accommodate as many requests as possible, Multimedia staff are not always available for support after hours. Should we be unable to fulfill your request, we will provide suggestions for a suitable, alternative solution.
Additional costs apply to events hosted by both Law School and non-Law School groups—other schools of Columbia University and approved external organizations—that end or begin after 8:30 p.m. or take place during the weekend.
The cost per staff member is $50 per hour. On the weekend there is a 4-hour minimum, for a cost of $200. Events after hours typically require one staff member. If an event is complex enough to require more than one staff member—it involves more than one classroom, video conferencing, and/or live streaming of video—the cost is $50 per hour, per staff member. On the weekend, the 4-hour minimum applies per staff member.
The cost for large, complex events, such as full-day or multiple-day conferences occurring on the weekend, will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
