Event Support

Our office provides audio/visual equipment, technical consultation, and technical personnel for UCSB events. We provide high quality support to all campus entities, departments, and student events in collaboration with other campus services, such as Facilities and Information Technology.

We are well-poised to help you plan and host a successful event on campus. Our Event personnel have expertise in lighting, audio engineering, presentation, projection, and general technical support across campus. Our professional technical staff is supported by well-trained student technicians and a variety of colleagues across campus. We collaborate with multiple departments on campus to ensure a smooth event day. When requested, we work with Instructional Development’s Video and Photo Services to capture or stream your event’s special moments.
