Faculty, permanent staff, and departmental secretaries may place orders. Temporary employees and students MAY NOT place equipment orders with Mediated Classroom Services (MCS).

Please be aware that many classrooms are already equipped with mediated equipment. Please consult the MCS Equipped Classroom list to see if the classroom has the desired features before placing an equipment order.
