Wireless microphone systems

In supported spaces with wireless microphones these are available from chargers on the AV lectern. The microphones are configured specifically for the individual rooms they are installed in, they will not work across multiple venues therefore it is imperative that they remain within the intended venue at all times.

To ensure microphones are readily available for the next user of the space, it is very important that they are placed back in their charger unit on completion of teaching sessions.

If you find a microphone that isn’t working, or has been removed from a supported space, then please contact us as soon as possible to enable quick and appropriate action to be taken and alleviate any potential distress to other users of the facilities.

Provision of Wireless Microphones in Spaces

The provision of wireless microphones across campus is based on several factors including:

  • Availability of frequencies for wirelees systems across campus (to avoid interference between spaces)
  • Room size, layout and ceiling height 
  • Room capacity

Where possible we do try to have a second microphone or spare battery in the charger to ensure all users have access to the wireless microphones.

If microphones are removed from the spaces they are allocated to it is not always possible to replace these or provide spares instantly.

Users are requested to ensure wireless microphones remain in the spaces they are allocated to and are replaced in the charger following use.

Please report any faults with wireless microphones to AVS as soon as possible.


The majority of spaces have a maximum of two wireless microphones available at one time. Specific spaces may have capacity for more then two spaces, further details available via the roomfinder website. 

Wireless Microphone Policy & Provision

The Digital Switchover and next round of specrum sell off by Ofcom to faciliate mobile broadband has meant that some changes to existing wireless microphone systems may be required.

Systems bought in the future need to be carefully co‐ordinated, or they may prevent each other from working. Audio Visual Services have audited all known wireless microphone systems on the main University campus and have:

  • Rationalised and reconfigured all wireless microphone systems in centrally supported teaching and learning spaces
  • Assisted University staff with the reconfiguration and/or replacement of school owned wireless microphone systems to ensure compliancy
  • Purchased a fixed site licence to cover all known RF radio microphone systems installed on the main University campus.

 If you are looking to purchase a wireless microphone system then please read the University Policy on Wireless Microphones below and then submit a request to AVS
