Reporting Building Problems

Our facilities staff address building issues and provide assistance with office moves and events. They also act as liaison to ASU Facilities Management. If you experience any issues with office furniture, plumbing, lighting, or electrical equipment please let us know:

Reserving Vehicles and Other Equipment

Some Institute affiliated research projects have vehicles and equipment that can be reserved by project researchers and field personnel. We also have a golf cart, a pick-up truck and technology items that are available to our faculty and staff. If you need to reserve a research vehicle, golf cart, or other equipment, you must meet the minimum training requirements (successful completion of ASU Authorized Driving Program) and be authorized to do so.

Meeting Rooms

The Global Futures Laboratory has access to multiple meeting rooms, the majority equipped with PCs, large monitors and Zoom/video-conferencing cameras and audio equipment. To request a room in the Rob and Melani Walton Center for Planetary Health, please contact Ruth Covington, Brandy Rios, or Jonathan Lefurgey.


Zoom is the primary video-conferencing options available to ASU. Information on these products can be found here:

To get the best performance from your video-conference (and to avoid frustration), plan ahead.

For meeting hosts:

  • Connect a few minutes early so that technical issues can be resolved
  • Assign a “meeting chair” to control the meeting and individual contributions
  • Make eye contact periodically, so remote participants don’t feel excluded

For all participants:

  • Make sure any remote hardware (webcams, audio, etc.) meets recommended specifications
  • Mute microphone when not speaking
  • To contribute, raise your hand and wait to be recognized by the chairperson
  • Avoid multiple people speaking at once
  • Avoid side conversations, as these result in distractions for other users
