Students may check out equipment from the Cronkite Equipment Lab according to course specifications. Students must place an online equipment reservation in advance and pick up equipment from Cronkite Room 608 at an assigned time. Equipment can be checked out for a maximum of 48 hours. It is strongly encouraged that you reserve equipment well before you need it. Students must return equipment at an assigned time to Room 608.

Students who are late returning equipment the first time receive a verbal warning. If students are late a second time, their privileges will be revoked for one day. A third offense results in a seven-day suspension of equipment privileges. And a fourth time means check-out privileges will be revoked for the remainder of the semester.

Equipment Lab hours are Mondays through Thursdays from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Fridays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 6 p.m. Equipment checked out on Friday is due back the following Monday.

Students must complete an equipment checkout agreement before they are allowed access to equipment. Agreements are submitted through Canvas.

All equipment and all content captured by the equipment is the sole property of ASU and the Cronkite School. Equipment must be used for the sole purpose of meeting the goals and objectives of the course(s) in which the equipment checkout agreement was signed, and may not be used for other purposes. Content captured via Cronkite School equipment cannot be distributed or sold without the express consent of the instructor or authorized administrator. Any equipment damage, violation of the video usage guidelines, or the Cronkite School Equipment Checkout Agreement is subject to referral to the school’s Academic Integrity Officer for possible disciplinary action.
