Media Center Policies

 The following policies have been put in place to assist with the management of our production and post production facilities and have been implemented to provide a safe environment for both students and equipment. 

* School of Communications/ Media Center does not rent its labs, studios, suites or equipment. Facilities are strictly for specified educational purposes only.

* Media Center staff can only provide information regarding the safe use of equipment to prevent damage. Please do not ask them to explain how the equipment operates or what equipment is needed for a particular assignment. Assistance of that nature should be found with your instructors.

* Only Media Center personnel are allowed in the equipment room.

* The Media Center does not loan or provide tools or office supplies

* The Media Center is not responsible for any personal effects, projects or class materials used or left in the facilities.

* You must have a valid university ID (current sticker) when checking out university loan equipment. A current sticker can be obtained at the University Center.

* Nearly all field production equipment is reserved on 24-hour basis, and a one-time 24 hour extension is available if the equipment has not been not reserved by someone else for the next 24 hour period. ( There are some exceptions for certain classes)  You must come in or call (314-246-6967) at least two hours in advance of the equipment return time to make arrangement for an additional 24 hours.  (NOTE: for some specific classes, equipment can be checked or longer periods of time)
