Using External Contractors

As managing department for Lohrfink Auditorium technology for the University, CETS must approve any entity other than the MSB Tech Center who would be providing technology in that venue.

In situations where auditorium users require technologies and/or service levels which CETS cannot normally support, CETS may partner with one or more external contractors to provide additional services. On occasion, CETS may permit an external contractor to provide all technology required by a particular auditorium program.

Please contact CETS before reserving or contracting with any external contractor for technology provision or support in the Lohrfink Auditorium.
