Additional Policies:
You must contact Media Services by emailing media@su.edu at least two weeks ahead of time for a price quote.  The price list above is for informational purposes only, is subject to change without notice, and may differ from the actual price quote depending on the specifics of your needs, which we will evaluate when creating a price quote.  As our department is primarily tasked with supporting teaching and learning, Media Services may refuse a request in order to prioritize the academic needs of the university.  Media Services may require borrowers to pay staff hourly fees in addition to any equipment rental fees if we deem it necessary to have a staff presence for the good of the equipment and/or the success of the event.  The above list applies to outside (non-SU) groups using SU facilities.  Media Services reserves the right apply the same pricing to SU student/faculty/staff requesters who are holding non-SU-department-sponsored (i.e. "personal") events at SU (wedding ceremonies, for example).  This fee list does not apply to SU department-sponsored events and classes.
