Loyola has established guidelines for upgrading rooms with high quality audio and video equipment that is easy to use. These are meant to serve as a starting point for considering upgrades to a private departmental space. ITS consultation is strongly recommended for general space design, pricing and vendor selection, as well as overall project management. To request an ITS consultation visit, please contact helpdesk@luc.edu.
