Equipment

The VRC provides equipment for creative work, documentation, and classroom use to faculty and students in the Department of Art and Art History. AAH students must present their Buff OneCards at the time of checkout. See the VRC’s equipment checkout policies for additional information about circulation policies for AAH faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students.

The VRC Equipment Room (room 310E of the Visual Arts Complex; 303-492-1313) is open during regular VRC hours, which are posted on our home page.

See our create images page for information about our fully equipped Portfolio Photography Room.

  • Equipment is for ARTS or ARTH coursework only. Students must be enrolled in in ARTS or ARTH courses to borrow equipment.
    • Students majoring in Studio Arts or Art History degrees who are not enrolled in ARTS or ARTH courses but need equipment for degree-related projects must request borrowing privileges from management, who will assess the need on a case by case basis.
  • The VRC charges late fines for overdue equipment.
  • Reserve equipment in advance to ensure availability (call 303-492-1313 during Equipment Room hours or stop by in person).
  • The checkout period is up to three business days, depending on reservation availability (when the due date falls on campus holidays or closures, the due date rolls forward to the next non-holiday date as indicated by the checkout agreement you sign).
  • Equipment may be renewed once if no other reservations exist; when equipment is renewed it is due back three days from the moment of the renewal.
    • Requests for extended checkouts under special circumstances may be made in advance with management; they are considered on a case by case basis and are not guaranteed.
  • Equipment is unavailable over winter break or during summer sessions when Art and Art History classes are not held.
  • During any given semester, all equipment is due back by the last day of final exams.
