Humanities 120 Media Lab Policies, Terms, and Conditions

  1. The Hum 1-120 Media Lab is a division-wide resource provided for the development of Humanities Division instructional materials and research.  
  2. The lab is for the use of Humanities faculty, staff, lecturers, and graduate student instructors with current quarter teaching appointments for the Humanities Division. Undergraduate student assistants may be permitted to use the facility when under the direction of principal investigators and/or division staff in order to conduct student work on faculty materials and projects. A one-time access request is required for ladder and SOE faculty and for staff, annual access renewal is required for continuing lecturers, and quarterly access requests are required for all other teaching appointments and student assistants. Request access from Humanities Facilities using the access request form here.
  3. TAs and Course Assistants, including undergraduate student employees, will undergo the same vetting as faculty/staff in order to be permitted to use the facility under the direction of principal investigators and/or division staff. In this capacity, such assistants may, or may not, work within the lab independently, depending on the nature of their work. 
  4. Please see the Workstation Reservations page for instructions to reserve a workstation. Electronic reservations help the division to understand lab usage, and to ensure that faculty get the resources that they need.  Eligible users may submit a reservation request at anytime. Requests are time-stamped, therefore lab requests are the definitive source of record should a scheduling conflict arise.
  5. Lab workstations may be reserved for up to 4 hours each day, one workstation at a time per user. Unless otherwise reserved on the calendar, workstations are available on a first come, first-serve basis. If a station has been reserved, but the reserving lab user is a "no show" after 30 minutes, the workstation is considered free and open to the next user. If a lab user "drops in" to use an unreserved station, they should submit a reservation request in order to get the workstation reserved on the calendar. If a request has not been completed, and another lab user subsequently reserves the workstation, the first lab user must relinquish the station.
  6. If, at such time, production needs exceed the capacity of the Lab, the above policies will be reviewed and reconsidered in order to best meet the instructional needs of the Division.
  7. Requests for support, training, and issues with documentation and equipment should be directed to Humanities Computing at
  8. If faculty or students have questions about their eligibility for lab use, request extended lab use, or have other administrative concerns, they should communicate their concerns to their Department Chair and to the Assistant Dean.
  9. Lab documentation, including a list of software and hardware, procedures, and links to reservation forms, is located at:
