Equipment Checkout Protocol
Step 1: Submit an online waiver (new students only). If you are a new student, you may need to submit your online waiver to gain access to the Patron Portal.
Step 2: Request the equipment or tool on the Patron Portal at reservation.newschool.edu. Reservation requests must be made 48 hours in advance of coming to campus.
Step 3: Make a technician consultation (if required). The Equipment Resource Center (ERC) and Specialty Sewing Lab require you to consult with technicians prior to checking out equipment. After your consultation has been completed, a technician will approve your reservation. Other tool checkouts do not require technician consultations.
