Resources for Current Students

Our current students have access to a wide set of resources to ensure they are successful during their DU experience. We encourage students to get involved on campus, work with your advisor to make sure you are on track with your degree and explore your post-graduate career options. Whatever you're looking for, we've got you covered.

Building Access

Our department maintains both computer lab and video lab facilities for our undergraduate and graduate students, especially those in the Film and Production major and in the Video Production graduate emphasis. Access is limited and our faculty will help determine which classes will need access during each quarter. 

Continuing students can apply for access in the first two weeks of classes and should review the Terms and Conditions document and check with faculty for any questions they have.

Equipment Access

Film and video equipment is available for MFJS production course students and students working on independent study with a MFJS faculty member. Current students who have completed the Intro to Field Production and Editing course can request equipment online for their coursework. 

MFJS equipment reservations are not for internships, personal or commercial use and are subject to the Video Facilities Terms of Use. If students or faculty outside of MFJS wish to use film production equipment, please visit the DU Digital Media Center, where a wide range of production equipment is available to the DU community.
