CIS-Media Technology Services has eliminated/minimized most charges for faculty sponsored or Student Activities Office sponsored events. These services will include 15 minutes of setup assistance and troubleshooting if needed. Extraordinary requests may incur charges if they create additional media services costs (e.g. need for staff overtime, late notification of staffing needs, outside equipment rentals, consumables); these charges will be decided in collaboration with the requester on a case-by-case basis. Administrative users, Continuing Education, and Non-Brown events on campus will continue to pay fees as in the past. Reservations must still be made to ensure that equipment and problem resolution staff are available. People with equipment and staffing reservations will be given priority over those without reservations. Service and support calls for events without reservations are subject to RUSH and processing fees.
