DARKROOM EQUIPMENT LENDING POLICIES

Official hours for equipment sign-out are listed above.

Only Yale School of Art Undergraduate students currently enrolled in a Photography course may check out equipment. Student auditors must provide their own equipment for Photography classes.

Faculty who need to borrow equipment should consult Benjamin Donaldson in Room G47 to make a special arrangement.

To ensure reliable student borrowing and equipment availability, all student borrowers must sign out equipment and agree to return conditions prior to taking possession of borrowed equipment. Students are responsible for returning all borrowed equipment ON THE AGREED UPON RETURN DATE, BY 12:30PM. Equipment returned late will be subject to an automatic $60 late equipment fee for the first day late. Equipment that is more than one-day late will be subject to recurring $60 late-fees for each additional day late, up to the value of the borrowed equipment. When the value of the equipment has been reached (after the initial $60 late fee), the student will be responsible for the total replacement cost of the borrowed equipment. Borrowing privileges can be revoked if equipment is lost, late or broken.

Extensions on borrowed equipment are subject to supply and demand. To avoid a late fee, an extension must be arranged before the final equipment due date and confirmed in writing with the Darkroom Staff.

Official hours for equipment return are: Monday through Friday, 10:30am to 12:30pm If you are unable to return during these hours on the scheduled date, bring your equipment in one day early. Equipment returned after 12:30 pm is considered late for that day and will result in a late fee.

Equipment borrowers assume full responsibility for the well being and safe return of borrowed equipment. Borrowed equipment that is lost or damaged while in possession of someone other than the borrower remains the borrowers full responsibility while under loan. The borrower also assumes full responsibility for the timely return of all borrowed equipment, and must return all borrowed equipment in proper working order. Repeated failure to return equipment in a timely manner can result in the loss of borrowing privileges.

All equipment must be signed out and returned to Green Hall, room G47.

Cameras and equipment can only be signed out for 3 days at a time, with exceptions for special projects authorized by Darkroom Staff. Sign-outs can be extended if the student comes to the office during equipment return hours to request a deadline extension and there is available supply for other borrowers.

For assistance, or for matters regarding borrowed equipment, please contact:

Yale School of Art, Darkroom 1156 Chapel Street, Room G47 203.432.2611 benjamin.donaldson@yale.edu
