Basic AV (see Standard Equipment below) is available in all classrooms and conference rooms, and offered to all CSSW affiliates (Social Work courses, administrative departments, student caucus groups and research projects) free of charge during standard hours of operation in the fall and spring terms.

AV charges apply to all customers unaffiliated with CSSW.
