Students and non-campus affiliates cannot make room reservations. However, you are welcome to use the Media Lab on a walk-in basis.

Policy Highlights

Please note that instructors should contact Audio Visual Services (AVS) to arrange equipment for screening in their regular classroom before making a reservation at the Media Lab.

  • Reservations are on a first-come-first-serve basis.
  • Rooms are for occasional use only (e.g., if your classroom is not media equipped or you are using media which cannot be circulated outside of Powell Library).
  • Only ARSCIMCS materials, and/or media approved by the IMCS may be used in the Media Lab.

Contact the IMCS office to request media or receive clearance to show your own media. Only approved media can be shown in the Media Lab.

We recommend consulting with the IMCS or ARSC to ensure that the media is here for your class meeting. Please contact the Media Lab at or 310-206-1211 to confirm room, equipment needed, dates and times.

You will be notified by e-mail of your reservation request details, along with a reservation number which confirms your request.

  • At least two viewers using the same media are required for room assignment.
