Research + Work

In addition to studios, workshops, laboratories, lecture and seminar rooms, the college has a number of specialized facilities which support its programs.


Photo Lab

The DAAP Photo Lab is located in Aronoff 4440. The DAAP Photo Lab provide several services to assist in printing, photographing, and documenting work. The DAAP Photo Lab also servers an inventory of photography, video, and sound equipment available to rent. 

The Photo Lab hours will vary over the course of the semester, adjusting to the needs of students. Please refer to the calendar posted right outside the Photo Lab doors for this month’s hours. The Photo Lab will be closed during school holidays and semester breaks.


Student Access
The Photo Lab is open to all students in all programs of DAAP. Printing and plotting services are available with no prior training. The photography shooting studios and the self-serve digital print room require an orientation given by a photo lab associate, which can be completed in the first few weeks of the semester. This can be done either by class or by individual sign-up. Once an orientation is completed, students can check out the studios, digital print room, and a variety of equipment that applies to their classes and training. In order to check out rooms and equipment students must submit their Bearcat Card to the front desk.


Equipment Checkout
The Photo Lab offers an array of photography, video and sound equipment to students. To gain access to the photography equipment, students should complete a studio orientation with the Photo Lab staff. Access to the video and sound equipment is decided on a case-by-case basis. Students must be in a sound or video class and teachers must arrange with Photo Lab staff to gain access to the equipment.

In order to check out equipment, students must submit their Bearcat cards at the front desk. If the Bearcat card is broken or damaged and will not scan, it is the student's responsibility to replace it. Bearcat cards are the only way that students will be permitted to check out equipment.
