Equipment Room

We have over a thousand pieces of gear from DSLRs and 4k cameras to light kits to highend audio field kits - we have what you need to do the work. Our dedicated professional staff is ready to meet your production needs.

Gear checkout proceedure:

  1. Students must submit their signed Equipment Use Agreement, scan their ID in the equipment room, and be properly entered into the checkout system before they will be permitted to check out equipment.
  2. A reservation form signed by the class instructor must be submitted at least 24 hours before equipment pick-up time for the reservation to be valid.
  3. Check out a temporary parking permit to use the loading and unloading zone when you are checking equipment in or out.

Equipment is always due back a day after it is checked out by 10:00 a.m. Late returns will merit a late fee of $50.00 per day.
