How to Request the Services

The followings are suggested to make a successful request:

  • Make sure your event is for internal SFU employee and partner viewing
  • Your venue has access to power and hardwired Internet

All requests are managed by MECS in collaboration with IT Services. In the event of a late booking, a fee will be charged to the client of $100. In the case of the service being overbooked, an alternative solution of an external vendor will be arranged by IT Services.

Internal events refer to events to be viewed primarily by SFU faculty, staff, or students, or SFU partners (e.g. APSA or CUPE Local 3338). For SFU faculties and departments planning videos or campus-based webcasts aimed at external audiences, please contact SFU Communications and Marketing using the SFU Communicators Toolkit.
