One more week! We at the Media Center hope that everyone's semester is ending well. As always, we are here to help with any equipment that you may need to finish your projects before December 11th. That's this Friday! Please send us any equipment requests via Personal Proposal (form found on our intranet site) by the end of tomorrow in order to get your equipment you need before the end of the semester. We will be halting reservations over winter break, starting December 11th at 7PM. So get your requests in before it's too late!


The Media Center’s hours and operations are changing to accommodate Thanksgiving break and the end of the semester! (Only 24 days left! Where did the time go…?)

The Media Center will not be accommodating equipment checkouts over Thanksgiving break in case equipment cannot be returned due to COVID-19. The Media Center’s circulation window will be closed from Wednesday, 11/25 to Sunday, 11/29.

Circulations will resume on Wednesday, 12/2, and all equipment is due back by Friday, 12/11. If you need equipment in December, you’ve only got 9 days to check it out.

As has been this semester’s norm, Personal Proposals are still needed for reserving all equipment and must be submitted 3-business days before the proposed pickup date and time. (

Unfortunately, the 335 Gray Studio, 345 Black Studio, and the Sound Studio (and Late Night for all) are closed beginning at 9:00 p.m. on 11/26. Get yer slots now at!

How's everyone's semester going?





But the good thing is, the Media Center is still here to support your equipment needs. We're obligated to tell you that our equipment is high-risk, and we ask you not to clean it yourself. If you ever need any equipment from us, fill out a personal proposal on our intranet site ( and give it a little incubation time, and víola! maybe you'll get it... maybe you won't... times are weird. But we will do the best we can to get you what you need.

Stop by and say hi!

Thank you so much to the cool cats who stopped by our kaleidoscope photo booth today!


HEY ALL ( I am in need of a new greeting, other than y'all and all)

In order to maintain proper distancing while still being available to patrons, we have decided that our full-time
(non work-study) staff will be on a rotating schedule (one week at MCAD, one week at home). Make sure to schedule your meetings with the appropriate staff by checking their at home/at MCAD schedule. Meanwhile, the staff not on campus will be available remotely, 9AM-5PM!


Hey ya'll!!!!!!!!
With the start of the new semester, the MCAD Media Center will only be accepting equipment reservations via Personal Proposal!!!!!

A reminder that Personal Proposals take up to 3 business days to review!!!


Welcome back MCAD! We are looking forward to seeing your bright and shiney faces come fall semester! We won't be able to see each other very much, so we went ahead and made an update video for all of you returning students wondering about our COVID-19 situation.


Hi all! MCAD will now be require everyone to wear face masks while inside the building. If you forget your mask, Public Safety can provide you with a disposable mask. This is in response to an executive order enacted by the City of Minneapolis that requires face coverings to be worn in buildings where the public is present.

For all updates, please see MCAD's COVID-19 response page:

COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”) At MCAD the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, and faculty is our top priority. We are continuing to closely monitor the global outbreak of COVID-19 ("Coronavirus") and taking proactive measures in an effort to reduce the risk to the community’s health and promote safety throughout the c...


Happy Thursday, ya'll! We received almost all of our equipment back last week and got them all back to their homes on our shelves on Monday. Thank you all for your cooperation in this weird time. We know that not having equipment over the summer is an adjustment for some of you, so if you are at all looking into buying equipment please reach out to us and we can give some recommendations on what might best suit your needs. Once again, please don't hesitate to email us at [email protected] if you have any questions at all.

Have a good summer, ya'll, and congrats on a completed spring semester!! We can't imagine how difficult it has been doing stuff online. We're looking forward to seeing everyone next semester!!!!!!!


Hey Friends!

We are excited to see everyone tomorrow and to have our equipment back, safe and sound.

A reminder that we are encouraging face masks, but not requiring the use of them while returning equipment later this week. We also have a hand sanitizer dispenser right outside our Media Center door, so we encourage you to use that before and after you drop off equipment.

We will have staff available to assist you and social distancing procedures in place.


Hey all! We are excited to see all of your faces this week!

A reminder that we will be open Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (13th-15th) 9AM-4PM to receive any equipment that you had checked out over this period of spring break/online learning. Any special circumstances (out of state, senior project) be sure to email us at [email protected]. You'll receive a status on your equipment return next week (18th-22nd).

Hope to see you there!
