Audio visual and IT support

Make use of our lecture theatres and classrooms for your event, and benefit from the services of our in-house IT team.

The majority of our rooms have built-in equipment, controlled using a simple digital touchscreen. All of our rooms come with a projector, screen, PC, speakers for PC audio and VGA and HDMI cables for connecting laptops. Our lecture theatres and some large classrooms also come with PA systems and fixed microphones.

All built-in equipment is included in the room hire charge. Additional equipment is available on request and we have excellent in-house technicians who can assist you if required.

Free Wi-Fi

Complimentary Wi-Fi is available on our campuses in Cambridge and Chelmsford using our Ruskin Guest Network. As the event organiser, you'll be issued with a PIN which you can share with delegates.

IT support

On-call IT support or IT support for set-up during working hours Monday-Friday is complimentary.

If an IT technician is required on-site for evening and weekend events, or to sit throughout the duration of an event, a £27.50 per hour charge will apply (minimum two-hour charge at weekends).
