Equipment Checkout

Located in Room 236E of Old Main, the School of Journalism and Mass Communication's Equipment Checkout Room is open five days a week to allow students to check out different types of camera and video equipment. The facility has everything from DSLR cameras to camcorders and hand-held recorders. Light kits, microphones, and tripods, are also available for checkout. Students must be on the valid roster of a SJMC class and bring their student IDs to borrow equipment.

Equipment Checkout Room hours are listed below. Students should check the schedule to make sure the office is open before each visit.

Professors are allowed make a special request if a large amount of equipment is needed on a certain day or if equipment is needed after office hours. To do so, an email must be sent to with at least 24 hours notice.

Open hours:

Monday -  Friday

11am - 4pm

Equipment Checkout Policy Revised Fall 2014


If a student is late returning equipment to the Equipment Checkout Room, the student loses all checkout privileges. In addition, a return that is two days late may result in up to a letter deduction on the student's course grade. If equipment is kept five days past the due date, it is considered stolen, and University Police will be notified.
