Lab Access for DPI Alumni

COVID-19 Update: 

Alumni lab access is suspended for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Guidelines for Consideration

Alumni of the Department of Photography and Imaging are eligible to utilize the department's digital labs in exchange for volunteer work during our semi-annual Portfolio Reviews.

To be considered as a volunteer reviewer, please contact Patricia McKelvin.

Access Rules

Access includes the use of our two digital labs and the computers, scanners, and printers therein, in addition to our Epson 9890 wide format 44-inch printers.

  • Use of Flextight virtual drum film scanners and Epson large format printers requires a Tech Out from Adam Ryder, Caleb Savage, or Edgar Castillo.  
  • For Spring 2020, these tech-outs are scheduled on alternating Fridays at 1PM or by appointment.
  • Purchase of approved inkjet achival paper is required for use in all printers within DPI Digital Labs, including the 44-inch wide format printers.  Ask DPI Tech Team if you are in doubt of paper type.
  • Note: Newsprint and transparency paper are never approved media for Epson inkjet printers.

Lab access is offered for a one-month period, with all allotted days to be used consecutively.

Lab access must be used within one year of being granted and cannot be banked or rolled over. Lab access is non-transferrable and can only be redeemed by the awardee. 

Lab access does not include the ability to check out cameras, lights, or related equipment from the Equipment Cage, but may be extended to digital lab related items such as Wacom tablets.


Lab access privileges are subject to change without prior warning. When using your awarded time, please contact a member of the DPI Tech or DPI Admin teams for updates to schedule and lab access and availability.
