EQUIPMENT LOAN PROGRAM
Students who are actively enrolled in the Digital Media program, and in good standing, are allowed to borrow select equipment for 24 hours. The loan period may be extended for advanced students for certain equipment when supplies are readily available. Most borrowed equipment may be used on or off-campus. Some equipment may only be used with the assistance and supervision of a lab assistant. Others require on-campus use only. Equipment available for lending include (but are not limited to):
- DSLR & mirrorless cameras / camcorders
- Lens & filters
- Tripods & dollies
- Lights for video / photography
- Audio recorders & microphones
- Headphones & slates
- Drawing tablets
- Other equipment required for course completion
Students (18 years or older) who wish to borrow equipment will sign a contract. If a student is less than 18 years old, parental signature and consent are required before the said student is allowed to participate in the loan program. We expect students to return borrowed items in the same condition in which items were lent (except for normal wear and tear). If borrowed equipment or parts thereof is damaged, destroyed, or missing for any reason while “checked out,” the person(s) who borrowed the equipment bears full responsibility for its replacement within 30 days of the loss or damage. No exceptions.
Please note that equipment may not always be available, and we reserve the right to limit the use of departmental equipment under certain conditions. Please see the lab coordinator for details.
