How to create a booking

How to edit, add to or update a booking before collection

You MIGHT be able to renew equipment for an extra two days if it is available. This can be done by going into your active booking from the home page, and selecting "renew booking". Again, renewals are not guaranteed. If you can't renew, it means someone else has booked the gear and it must be returned at the originally scheduled time.

Creating a new booking does not extend an existing booking. Do not make back-to-back bookings.

Do NOT make multiple bookings for the same day. Instead, follow the guide above to update/edit a booking and add additional items if required. Multiple bookings will be deleted.

Fines & lost or damaged equipment

  • Overdue equipment more than 1 hour late will attract a fine of $20. An additional fine of $20 will apply for every additional 24 hour period (excluding weekends). Your borrowing privileges will be suspended until paid.
  • The borrower is responsible for the safety of the equipment & will be charged the full replacement cost for any loss or damage (including when working in a group). Do not leave equipment in cars or in plain sight of the public.
  • Equipment that is returned in a manner requiring cleaning will be charged a minimum $20 fine; depending on how extensive a clean is required. This includes cases and accessories.


  • You will need to present your current Swinburne ID card. Only the person who made the booking can collect the equipment (equipment will not be given to friends/family looking to collect on a user's behalf).
  • Equipment must be borrowed and returned during opening hours on or before the agreed date & time.
  • Equipment is to be returned in the same condition it was borrowed. This includes items in the correct places in bags and cables neatly wound and tied. It is the borrower's responsibility to erase memory cards.
  • If working in a group of 5 or more on-campus a member of the group must wear a hi-viz vest (available from the office).
  • Staff reserve the right to limit bookings where a user has booked a large amount of equipment that may limit fair access to other users.
  • To ensure fair access to all students, do not make back-to-back bookings. Staff may delete bookings where a student has booked the same item/s multiple times with no gaps between bookings.
  • Subjects requiring green-lighting: your project must be greenlit prior to booking any gear to ensure productions are happening in a safe manner. Bookings for projects that are not greenlit will be deleted.
  • Equipment is to be used for the purposes of completing assigned work as part of your Swinburne course and must not be given or sub-let to any other parties.
  • To minimise the risk of transmission of COVID-19, we strongly suggest students wash their hands before and after using equipment and avoid touching their face while using gear. Hand sanitiser can also be used.


  • No food or drink is allowed in any studio.
  • Non-attendance of a studio booking at the scheduled starting time will result in that booking being canceled.
  • Studio spaces must be left as they were found (rubbish removed, furniture returned, cabling connected).
  • The person booking the studio is responsible for loss and damage (including when working in a group).
