AgriLife Conference Rooms

AgriLife conference rooms within the AgriLife Services and AGLS headquarter building, and across the state are supported by AgriLife IT. Each system is configured in a KIOSK mode, meaning there is no need to log in to the system. Simply click on the application you wish to run.

Some conference rooms are enabled with Logitech Tap Teams systems.

A touchscreen console can be found in every AgriLife conference room. This console is the heart of every meeting.

Conference Room Upgrades

The AgriLife IT budget for the Fiscal Year 2022 has been consumed. We cannot offer any more upgrades until Fiscal Year 2023.

AgriLife IT has budgeted for each fiscal year to upgrade a limited amount of conference rooms across the state with our Kiosk setup. This offering is capped at a maximum of 2 Kiosk systems per year per department until the budgeted allocation is consumed.

We will provide a free Intel NUC, that is preconfigured with standard software such as:

  • Office 365 applications (OneDrive, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Teams)
  • Zoom
  • Google Chrome

This offer does not include any display monitors, speakers, keyboard, mouse, or other accessories.

Each system is remotely managed by AgriLife IT staff. No login is required, and anyone can use the software installed.

For more information on this offer, to claim your department’s 2 free Kiosk systems, or to have Microsoft Teams Rooms set up in your conference rooms, please send an email to firstcall@ag.tamu.edu:
