Video Conferencing

Information Technology Services supports students, faculty, and staff in making video conference calls. Our staff are here to assist you with equipment setup and troubleshooting. Seattle University's main video conferencing room is located in Engineering 532.

This equipment should not be confused with web conferencing such as Skype. The equipment used is a Polycom Viewstation which uses IP technology to establish the call.  It allows users to send audio and video between Seattle University and remote locations that have similar video conferencing equipment.  This equipment is standards based and is compatible with most new equipment as well as older systems. 

Request Video Conference

You may reserve the room and system by contacting Conference and Events Services (CES). When scheduling video conferences, it is important to determine what equipment will be used and make sure someone is available who knows how to use the equipment. Be sure to schedule sufficient time before and after the meeting for set-up and disassembly of equipment. The room and equipment reservations are tentatively scheduled pending call site verification. 

When requesting a conference, you will need to have the following information:

  • Dates and times of conference
  • Site information of who you are conferencing with, including a technical contact name and phone number
  • A name and phone number of the people you wish to include in the conference

Conferences cannot be scheduled without this information. All video conferences must be scheduled a minimum of 10 days prior to your event.
