Webcams Provide Live Views of Campus

Several webcams on the Truman Campus provide live views on the Truman website.  

The Truman Parents’ Project provided the first three webcams in 2004, which show views of the Student Union Building, the Quad and the walkway alongside the library. Residence Life added a webcam in 2005 to capture the progress of construction on West Campus Suites.

Todd Kuhns, web services manager, said many Truman alumni and friends regularly check in on the site.

“When one of those cams goes down, we usually hear about it first from a parent or alumnus off-campus,” said Kuhns.

Kuhns said one challenge to installing the cameras is getting wiring for power and network access to the often difficult-to-reach mounting locations.

Nevertheless, plans are in the works to add two more cameras in the near future.
