Reserving Equipment | Kent State University

Reserving equipment and services

Equipment available for rental ranges from visual displays, to public address systems, to multimedia processing units. Due to the unique nature of each event, a consultation is required to discuss the equipment needs for successful execution.  Large events may require additional meetings to discuss changing needs and problems as they arise. 

Reservations for equipment must be made a minimum of two weeks prior to event date to ensure availability of equipment and personnel. Failure to place a reservation within this time frame may result in additional fees, overtime charges, or unavailability of desired equipment.

To schedule an consultation, or to make a reservation, please:

  • Download and complete the Audio Visual Equipment & Labor Request form found here.
  • Email AV Events at avevents@kent.edu with a completed Audio Visual Equipment & Labor Request form.
  • Faculty and Staff can submit a Support Ticket at support.kent.edu. Choose Request Type, “Audiovisual (AV) Requests and Issues” and "Schedule AV Equipment for an Event" in the Request Type sub-field. Please attach the Audio Visual Equipment & Labor Request form to the ticket.

Questions or issues can be directed to avevents@kent.edu. Banner billing codes for student organizations can be obtained from the Center for Student Involvement. Individual Banner numbers for students will not be accepted for billing purposes.
