How to contact us

Please contact us on 5519 internally or 01326 255519 externally for support during teaching hours. Each seminar room and lecture theatre in the combined teaching spaces has a telephone which you can use to contact us in the event of an issue with the AV systems. Please note that we can only offer limited support for issues related to IT user accounts, user hardware or software and as such we will direct you towards the IT Service Desk where appropriate.

All AV requests are subject to support staff availability and we require adequate notice in order to manage resources effectively. All colleagues who receive AV/IT support from Academic & Student Services agree to adhere to the computing policies and JANET acceptable use Policy.

Lecture capture

RECAP Lecture Capture facilities are available for the University of Exeter in all of the lecture theatres on the Penryn campus and the Exchange Seminar Rooms.


AV Services offer video conference support in the combined teaching spaces using our system of IP based video conference hardware. Our facilities offer real time video conferencing to the University of Exeter where they also operate a number of dedicated rooms on the Streatham and St Lukes campuses. Please note that our primary support is this video conference platform and we can only offer limited support to those wishing to use other Desktop video conference technologies. This is also available to Falmouth University to communicate with other Hardware users.

To arrange a video conference, first contact the Room Bookings team and request a video conference capable room. If you have the information at the time, please provide the Room Bookings team with the room on the Exeter campus you wish to hold a video conference with. If you do not have this information at this time, please contact us when you do and we will amend your booking. We will be forwarded your information once the room has been booked. Equally, please make sure you also book support on the far site for a technician to attend.

Please give us as much information about the video conference as you can when making a booking as this will help us provide a better service. For example, if you know that a presentation is due to be given by a colleague from this campus to Exeter, or if you expect that a large number of people will be in attendance. Please make sure that you contact us if you wish to cancel your booking as soon as possible so that others may be free to use the service.
