Classroom Technology

All classrooms in Sullivan Hall and the Law School Annex come with standardized, smart podium interfaces.

To request in-person training, send an email to medialaw@seattleu.edu or ask your administrative assistant to schedule training. Law school staff and full-time faculty can fill out the Assistance/Equipment Setup Request Form directly.

Multipurpose Rooms (non-classroom spaces)

As our classrooms are often full, some special events are scheduled in multipurpose spaces that double as hallways and/or study areas. If you are expecting to do a presentation in these areas, here is what you should know.

Sullivan 2nd Floor Gallery

  • Microphone inputs
  • Music player input (1/8" port)
  • Lighting

By pre-arrangement, a portable projector and screen can be set up. Panel microphones are also possible through the use of a mixer, which Media Services can set up.

Sullivan Conference Room 121

This room is a non-classroom space for conferences. However, it has classroom-like functionality as listed above.


Classroom Maintenance

Media Services conducts morning equipment checks inside all law school classrooms. While these checks prevent most issues from impacting classes, breakdowns and/or user errors can impact equipment during the day. To report problems with the equipment in law school classrooms, call x4444 or send a detailed email to medialaw@seattleu.edu.
