Overview 

In the interest of the health and safety of our community, the Equipment Center has suspended operations. Once we are back in full swing, we will work closely with students and faculty to ensure our resources are available for the broad range of projects that need them. During this time, staff will be working remotely.

Please email eqc@newschool.edu with any questions or concerns.

The Equipment Center (EQC) offers reservation and checkout of audio and video production equipment for field and studio use. A list of available field and in-house (studio) production equipment can be found on the Equipment Center Kit Details (PDF).
