Welcome to ASTEC

The Associated Students Technical Service (ASTEC) serves students by elevating the technology profile for events.  We provide PA systems for banquets, concerts, public speakers, and more.  Our lighting and projection equipment can be tailored to your needs in any space on campus.  If you are interested in reserving our services scroll down and select the group you best represent and complete a request form.  We will review your request and touch base with you as soon as possible.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Associated Students Technical Services (ASTEC) is to serve the students of the University of Wyoming (UW) by providing production technologies, programming, and event consultation to create a platform for expanding student ideas, enhancing the impact of presentations and performances, and developing co-curricular education. ASTEC exists as an impartial, non-discriminatory assistance group and partner to qualifying student-oriented groups in order to add professionalism to events, boost student morale, and to promote safe, entertaining, and educational events. Through ASTEC, students learn to appreciate individual differences and similarities, personal responsibility, and effective communication; develop skills to think objectively and critically, develop citizenship skills, gain greater self-understanding; and to enhance their feelings of engagement, belonging, and loyalty at UW.


ASTEC services exist primarily for the students of the University of Wyoming. This is outlined in ASUW Senate Bills #2528, #2546, and #2618 (all accessible through the ASUW legislation archives and reference a few earlier bills). Services are offered to approved departments and third parties when appropriate, and in all cases, services are primarily offered on central campus (central and peripheral campus are outlined in Senate Bill #2501).

ASTEC requires any event request to be in no later than 2 business weeks before the event occurs. Additionally, ASTEC reserves the right to deny services based on availability or coordinator discretion, such as if minimum requirements are not being met after approval initially happens.


Limitations Due to COVID-19

With the global spread of COVID-19 impacting our university in unprecedented ways, from group gathering caps, to social distancing, and the fiscal impacts being faced by the university, we are currently scaling down our services in order to provide a better fit to the students of the University of Wyoming. As such, at this time we will ONLY be able to staff events taking place within the Wyoming Union, on Prexy's Pasture, or in Simpson's Plaza. Additionally for Fall 2020, ASTEC services will be offered only to student organizations as well as departmental groups within the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership (CSIL).

We will be expanding our services in the form of equipment rentals. Be it mixers, PA's, lighting instruments, or projectors, we will work with you to provide our equipment in order for you to enhance your events with professional grade audio, lighting, and projection gear.
