Satellite Downlinking

Many educational resources can be broadcast via satellite for faculty and students to view live or to record and view later. ITS can redirect a satellite downlink to almost every classroom on campus and many of the campus's larger venues (including Cook Hall's Anheuser-Busch Auditorium, Carlo Auditorium, the Learning Resources Center auditoriums and the underground lecture halls).

To request a satellite downlink event:

  1. Contact the provider and subscribe to the event.

  2. Contact University Event Services to arrange for an appropriate space.

  3. Contact the IT Service Desk at 314-977-4000 or visit the IT Service Desk page for a complete listing of service desk locations and contact information. Confirm with ITS staff that you're planning to host a satellite downlink event. Please provide the date, time and appropriate fund number for any bill back charges.

  4. Follow up with ITS to provide the satellite coordinates when you get them from the provider. These are usually e-mailed, so please forward the e-mail to the appropriate ITS staff or to

Please note: Any costs associated with satellite downlinks (subscriptions, extended technical staffing, etc.) must be budgeted by the requesting department.
