Lab Equipment Reservations

Lab equipment is reserved using the lab's equipment reservation system. A guide to using the equipment reservation system can be found here. Prior to utilizing equipment, you must be properly trained by the lab director or otherwise approved to use it.

Please note that if this is your first time logging into the system, you will see the following message:

“Welcome. You do not currently have permission to check out equipment. If this is your first time logging on, or you think this is in error, please contact the requisite lab director for access".

If you see this message, contact the requisite lab director for access. Keep in mind that it may take a few days for you to gain access to the system for the first time.

The calendar on this page is READ ONLY, for use in quickly checking what equipment is currently reserved. Pay special attention to green, red, or blue events on the calendar; these often mean that recordings are in progress or in some cases that the whole lab is in use for a meeting. It is a good idea to verify that the equipment or computer you wish to use is not checked out even if you find it present in the lab or otherwise unoccupied — someone who has checked it out has priority for the use of any equipment.

HINT: click the small downward-pointing triangle in the upper right corner of the calendar to decipher the color-coding.
