EDM Computer Labs DOC Equipment Check-out

The equipment below is available for checkout by students in EDM and DIAP courses.

Equipment Check-out: students have access to many digital video cameras and several digital still cameras, and may borrow equipment necessary for assignments like wacom tablets and portable sound systems.

DOC Checkout Insurance Policy Requirement

Students who want to check out DOC/Art Department equipment valued at $300 or more must now provide proof of personal insurance for the entire replacement value of the equipment borrowed. No items will be checked out without proof of insurance.

This new policy will replace our previous policy of applying the full purchase price of any lost, stolen or damaged equipment to a student's Bursar Account, thereby putting a hold on the student's bill until the balance is paid.

Lost or damaged items <$300 will still be charged against a student's Bursar Account if not reimbursed directly by the student or by insurance.

Students can buy a policy for College Student Insurance which provides theft and accidental damage coverage for both a student's personal property (like laptops, phones, bicycles etc.) plus any EDM property temporarily in the student's care.

For coverage and pricing visit: There are several companies offering this type of insurance.
We are providing this link for students' convenience since CSI is a company used by many other schools for a similar purpose. However you may choose to get your insurance from another company.

Don't forget to bring proof of insurance when you make your reservation and then come to pick up your equipment.
Loans will not be processed without proof of current insurance

See our equipment check-out policies, sign and return the check-out form and reserve equipment here.

Please read the policies carefully. Checkout has clear time limits and penalties for returning equipment late. Especially in the case of high end or in-demand equipment or equipment where we only have one item, there are restrictions on checking out the same item consecutive times. Students keeping equipment out past the deadline or otherwise using equipment inappropriately will have lab privileges withdrawn.

Additional information is on the lab page. Print Center information, including paper and pricing information is at the Digital Output Center page.
