Information for Faculty and Guest Speakers at SFSU
Contact your speaker at least 10 days before their presentation to allow time to make reservations and iron out any details. Waiting until the day before they arrive can cause problems with equipment availability.
All reservations must be made by SFSU faculty and must be signed out in person with a current SFSU faculty ID card.
Make sure they arrive with plenty of time to find parking, get to the classroom and set up for their presentation.
When you contact your Guest, ask them the following questions:
What kind of equipment will you need? Computer, Internet access, Video, Audio?
Do they have their own laptop?
If yes, make sure they bring any adapters to connect to an XGA projector. We can project up to 1024x768 resolution. Make sure they bring their ac adapter.
If no, you will need to provide a laptop available from our office. Call415-338-1494 to reserve the unit as far in advance as possible.
Guest laptop: There is no guest access to the SFSU wifi network. To log in to wifi, faculty will need to use their SFSU ID & password on the speaker's laptop.
You may check out an ethernet cable from our office. No login required.
AT laptops: Please ask for an ethernet cable when you check out the laptop.
Are they bringing a VHS tape or DVD?
Will they need audio playback from their laptop? Most classrooms already have a cable to connect to a laptop's headphone jack. Call us with any questions.
