User Services
Special events and conferences take place on the SUNY Fredonia campus that includes all campus meetings, building ribbon cuttings, Media Day, Professional Development Day, visiting campus conferences, and the Teaching and Learning conference. ITS support for special events includes testing of equipment prior to the event, setting equipment up, operating equipment, providing support during the event, and escalating requests for assistance to appropriate staff members.
Business Services
Faculty and staff in academic departments can request ITS assistance with events and conferences. Visiting campus groups utilizing SUNY Fredonia facilities will receive a price estimate provided by ITS for event or conference support.
Technical Services

To provide equipment for events and conferences, ITS must maintain a working inventory of event support equipment including audio reinforcement systems, cables, laptops, media players, microphones, network cables, projectors, projection screens, and video adapters.

Consultation at least 3 weeks prior to the event is required. Details on the event will be needed with date(s), times(s), location(s), equipment required, schedule, and guest network accounts needed.  Conferences or major campus events may require a site walkthrough prior to the event taking place.  Events and conferences that take place in the Williams Center should first consult with Campus Life staff.   
Rates / Cost of Use
Cost estimates will be provided after initial consultation has occurred for the event.  Estimates may include equipment rental and labor costs for providing technical support.
