The Yale University, School of Art Darkroom facilities are open to any undergraduate or graduate student currently enrolled in the Photography Department program of study.

The Undergraduate Lab consists of two multi-station B&W gang labs, finishing areas and several private multi-purpose darkrooms. There is also one 10 station digital lab for Intermediate and Advanced level classes. This lab contains two Epson 4900 ink jet printers and one Epson 9890 large format printer, an Imacon scanner, and several flat-bed scanning stations. Undergraduates enrolled in Intermediate and Advanced level classes have access to the labs during open hours.

Special departmental access is required for some Undergraduate lab areas.

Graduate students have access to two shared darkrooms for B&W and alternative process printing and finishing. The main MFA lab space is a 10 station digital production facility. This space contains two Epson 9890 wide format ink jet printers, one 11880 ink jet printer, two Imacon scanners (for up to 4 by 5 inch negatives), and several other scanners and printers. All darkroom facilities are available to graduate students twenty-four hours a day. Six studio spaces are available for weekly use. These are used for viewing and production of work.

A variety of equipment is available for loan to students currently enrolled in classes within the Photography Department. We are currently in the process of putting the catalog of these items online.

The Darkroom Labs are supported by a faculty member (Benjamin Donaldson, Lecturer) and have individual student monitors for evening and Sunday open lab hours.
