Each year the College replaces the AV facilities in a number of teaching spaces across its estate.  We are trying to move to a 5 year replacement cycle, however this is dependant on available funding.  Due to the effects of COVID-19, unless told otherwise, the project will look to ensure all rooms added this year will be capable of running online teaching sessions.  For financial year 2022/23 the replacements are below.
