The MTR Team provides limited Audio-Visual equipment for rent to users of our facilities. 

The cost of equipment rental for events in the Calit2 Auditorium and Calit2 Theater--projector and microphones-- is included in the new bundled rates specified here.

  • Equipment is only rented or loaned to Calit2-approved projects or events
  • Removing the equipment from the Atkinson Hall building is not allowed
  • All rentals are short-term only
  • Inventory is limited, so availability is not guaranteed


Excluding the bundled-rate equipment, all other equipment used for MTR-supported events will be billed according to the price list below:
