The Tool Checkout will be closed 5/15-5/27 for inventory. We will reopen 5/28 and will be located at N2 Wood Shop for the summer sessions.
The L2 Making Center Tool Checkout is a tool loan center that provides tool access to Parsons students within the 2w13th building, located on the second floor. Students are permitted to borrow tools within open hours, with a four-hour return policy (No overnight rentals are permitted, and tools must be returned an hour before closing). Tools provided by the L2 Tool Checkout must be used following all New School safety protocols and facility policies.
Students are responsible for the condition and care of all tools including accessories that are associated with them. At the time of rental, students should check the condition of all tools checked out. It is the responsibility of the student to inform the staff of any problems or concerns with the tool.
Tool reservation must be done in person, and late returns will result in an automatic, temporary hold of the user’s account.
Installation Kits are designed to facilitate an installation process for large groups outside of the New School Facilities. The reservations are only available to the faculty members in charge of the exhibit/project. The reservation must be made 2 weeks in advance via Installation Request Form and approved by the manager. Installation Kits are in high demand April through May and some requests may not be accommodated.
