During Level 3 of the national lockdown the AVS team returned in a limited capacity to campus to resume audio visual support to those staff members back on campus. Since their return, AVS staff members have performed routine venue checks and maintenance on AV systems across the institution’s main campus ensuring that teaching spaces are operational when staff return to campus in 2021.

In some venues the audio-visual systems had become inoperable and a vendor was brought in to repair 27 venues. These include:

·         A – block = 5 classes

·         B – block = 4 classes

·         C – block = 5 venues

·         L – block = 5 venues

·         DL – block = 3 classes
