Welcome to the Tool Checkout!

We are open primarily for contactless pick-up/returns*.
We will not be able to accommodate any “walk-in” requests at this time.

* Upon approval of your request, a designated area will be assigned as a pick up location.

To request equipment please follow these steps:

  1. Visit to select and request equipment. Reservations must be made 48 hours in advance of coming to campus. Keep an eye on email for reservation request approval.
  2. Pick up your equipment! Pick up times and locations will be sent with reservation approval. These pick ups and drop offs can be made from 12pm–5pm Weekdays. Students MUST fill out the daily MHealth symptom-self screening (find the personal link sent to each student via email), and bring TNS ID with you on the day or your reservation.

Thank you for your patience and understanding! Please email us at  if you have any questions.


Please note that orientations will not be offered in the Fall 2020 Semester. Students who were oriented in the past will retain access.

Open Work Space is available to all students, located on the 4th floor of 25 E 13th St. The space is prioritized for students where work can be observed and created collaboratively. The Studio encourages students to experiment within the boundaries of theory and practice. The Open Work Space is adjacent to the Laser Cutting Lab, Metal Shop and Wood Shop. This space is lightly supervised, thus we ask students to be attentive to the needs and wishes of those around them while working.
