CLOSED 11th-18th of September for mid-semester break. You can borrow before the break and return after.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
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.
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.

EQUIPMENT BORROWING AND CLEANING GUIDELINES FOR PRODUCTION STUDENTS DURING COVID
- Wearing a mask – students must wear a mask in accordance with current DHHS guidelines. A personal mask should be carried with you at all times.
- The 1.5m rule for social distancing is to be observed at all times.
- Be on time – to avoid crowding, students must attend Swinburne at their scheduled time. If this needs to be changed, let staff know PRIOR to attending campus to ensure a new time can be allocated.
- Staff may contact you to reschedule a booking pick-up or return time to ensure safe numbers are on campus. Check your student email regularly.
- Once you arrive at campus, connect with the Swinburne Wifi.
- Stay at home if you have any symptoms – Do not attend campus if you are feeling ill or have any flu-like symptoms or are required to self-isolate.
- Equipment should be booked in the standard manner for each equipment site visited (AS, ATC or 24G).
- Where possible, only one person should attend to collect or return gear. If you’re working in a group with a large amount of gear, an additional student who is in that group (not friends or family members) may assist.
- Cleaning supplies: upon collection, you may request production staff give you hand sanitiser and ISO wipes for cleaning equipment.
Using Equipment Off-site
- Equipment must be used by one user at a time. The user’s hands should be sanitised prior to, and after using the equipment.
- As part of the shoot, if the equipment’s primary operator is transferred to a new user, equipment must be cleaned with supplied ISO wipes. Attention should be paid to the major touchpoints of the equipment (for example, on a camera this would be the grip, lens barrel (not the glass), buttons, battery and memory card area.
- Prior to cleaning, ensure all power is disconnected (this includes battery sources).
- If the equipment is used by a single person ONLY, then it doesn’t have to be cleaned while in use (it will be cleaned upon return to the university).
- Where space is available, production staff will supervise the cleaning of all equipment by the borrower/s.
- Where space is not available, equipment will be handed to production staff to be cleaned.
