Equipment Checkout

Equipment Checkout Procedure – Audio, Video, & Lighting

Students and faculty may make equipment reservations.

  • Intro level students (FA071 and Color Photo) may make reservations up to two weeks ahead of the requested date.
  • Advanced Fine Arts undergrads, grads, and faculty may make reservations for any time during the semester.
  • Reservations must be made with the Lab Techs during lab hours.


When you checkout FAAH equipment, you agree to the following conditions:

  • Equipment may be checked out for 72 hours or until the next day the lab is open.
  • Equipment must be returned at the time due.
  • Equipment may be renewed once if no other student has requested it.
  • Renewals must be made in person.
  • When you check out an item, please confirm that all the items listed on the bag are present. The equipment list will be checked on return and you will be responsible for any missing items.
  • The individual who checked out the equipment remains responsible for it for the duration of the checkout period. Do not pass equipment along to a friend. You remain responsible for its safety and timely return.
  • Reservations may be made up to two weeks in advance for FA071 and FA042 students and at any time during the semester for Fine Arts upper level, graduate students, and faculty. See a lab monitor, who will enter your reservation into the checkout calendar.
  • Special permission must be requested for longer checkout periods. Please see James Huckenpahler or Siobhan Rigg.
  • Students who are regularly late in returning or abusive of equipment may lose checkout privileges.
