Updated February 20, 2024 

EQUIPMENT RESERVATIONS 
Camera Club equipment is reserved by filling out the Equipment Rental Request form. Camera Club members can pick up reserved equipment from the Camera Club Darkroom during curator hours. For updated curator hour see the Facilities & Curator Hours page.  

Members are only allowed two bookings per month. (e.g. each member can book twice each month). Advanced Reservations are possible no more than two months in advance.  

LATE POLICY 
The member should return the said equipment on the return date specified in their rental confirmation. The member has to return the borrowed equipment in person and address any issues the curator might identify. In the event of a late return, the member must pay a penalty fee of $50 per rental period. Members are responsible for ensuring equipment is returned on time. This means you must time your equipment return and pickup around issues of traffic, TTC delays, weather etc., unless you provide email communication to darkroom@harthousecameraclub.ca in advance.  

LOSS/DAMAGE POLICY 
Members who lose or damage equipment are liable for up to $350 in repair/replacement costs, subject to any changes in the University of Toronto insurance policy. They may also have their borrowing privileges suspended at the discretion of the Camera Club. Members must maintain proper supervision and handling of the equipment in their care, ensuring it’s secured properly when not in use. DO NOT LEAVE THE EQUIPMENT UNATTENDED IN AN UNSECURE ROOM, VEHICLE, OR AREA. 

EQUIPMENT LOANS AND RETURNS  
Equipment loans and returns are done at the Camera Club Darkroom during curator hours. Show the Darkroom Curator your email confirmation for checking out an item, and they will give you the requested item.
