In the case that the nature of your event supersedes the capacity of the event spaces above and you confirm a reservation in a general inventory space (i.e. rooms reserved via Ad Astra) and need media you will need to contact Instructional Development. Instructional Development is dedicated to providing reliable and effective audio, video, and computer displays at competitive rates.
If you are a planning a concert or dance with live music we highly recommend that your organization request sponsorship by Associated Students Program Board (ASPB). ASPB is experienced at presenting live music for the UCSB community and with their sponsorship they can provide your event with production for films and concerts as well as event volunteers to assist with crowd management.
If you are looking for a small Public Address (PA) system for outdoor music or a performance the ASPB office (located in A.S. Main Office, 1st floor of the Multicultural Center) allows the UCSB campus community to check it out the system for free. You will need your access card. Remember, to apply for permission to amplify music or voice, which you can do when you create your event on Shoreline and fill out the 360 Event Planning Guide paperwork. For more information about amplification, please visit the Sound Amplification Guidelines.
