Media Services Vending Guide

The Media Services Center, located on the 4th floor of the Ansin Building, has a wealth of equipment available to Emerson College students, faculty, and staff to borrow.

Fall 2020 Update

Borrowing instructions for Fall 2020 semester:

  • Equipment can be reserved online via our new Patron Portal or via phone/email. (Sign in with your Emerson username and password)
    • We are discouraging walk-up service since we will have limited staff on-site simultaneously. 
  • All online reservations must be placed at least 2 hours before pickup time.
  • Operating hours for equipment borrowing are Monday through Friday, 10:00am - 6:00pm.
  • Equipment must be picked up or dropped off within the above hours, by appointment only, in a designated area near the entrance to the office.
  • You must show your Emerson ID to the front desk staff through plexiglass when you are picking up or dropping off.
  • All equipment will be isolated for 72 hours and sanitized upon return. Equipment rental times will be extended to accommodate.
