Our goal is to make technology accessible, reliable, and user-friendly. Media Services will typically respond to classroom technology emergencies in 10 minutes or less and provide a solution within 20 minutes. Emergency service is available to customers using APU-owned facilities and technology during hours of operation. Arrangements for support of after-hours classes or special events should be made through our office at least two weeks in advance and may incur additional charges. Media Services is unable to confirm media request changes if they are not submitted during normal office hours.
The integrated technology systems in the classrooms and meeting spaces of APU are vital to the operation of the university. IMT Media Services strives to keep these systems up and running through routine maintenance and emergency repair. If you notice any problem with a system, please bring it to our attention.
For your convenience, every classroom is equipped with a telephone that has been programmed with the following speed dial numbers:
- Campus Safety
- Support Desk
Please use speed dial 2 from any classroom to call the Support Desk.

While Media Services makes every effort to assure the functionality of classroom technology, it is not possible to guarantee 100 percent reliability. There may be times when equipment malfunctions. In these cases, Media Services will make every effort to assist with alternate solutions. With this in mind, however, please plan classes, lectures, events, and functions with a “back-up” or alternate plan. Media Services will be happy to assist you with planning.
