Classroom Support Services provides comprehensive media support and services to support in-classroom instruction. No-charge teaching equipment is provided by CSS for regularly scheduled 100-499 level courses meeting in general-use classrooms and, when equipment is available, for 100-499 level courses meeting in departmental teaching spaces. In addition, CSS generally provides no-charge teaching equipment to regularly scheduled, classroom based graduate level courses.
The majority of general-use classrooms at the University of Washington come equipped with basic audio-visual equipment consisting of an overhead projector, projection screen, a TV and a VCR. Many have more advanced equipment including data and video projectors; voice amplification and program audio systems; DVD players, audio cassette recorders/players and audio CD players. Over 80 general use classrooms are equipped with permanently installed PC workstations in the instructor's podium. Approximately 75% of general-use classrooms have an active Ethernet connection and can support portable computing and data projection equipment. A comprehensive listing of CSS supported equipment in general-use classrooms is available at the Classroom Planning & Schematics page.
Equipment to support self-sustaining courses including executive and continuing education programs, graduate thesis and dissertation defenses, departmental meetings, workshops and conferences is available for a modest daily rental fee.
