Checkout access is for designated courses in CCOM only. If you are not enrolled in a production-related course, do not sign in unless you have been instructed to do so by your instructor or Mark Harris.

You must do an initial login with your Butler username and password in order to receive your access assignment(s). If you used Connect2 last semester and are enrolled in a checkout course this semester, you are probably still in the system and strikes will be carried over from last semester. 

Checkout is no longer open on weekends. If you need to use equipment over the weekend, you will need to make a booking from Friday to Monday. 

New Videos posted in Help Section❓:
▶️How to make a booking in Connect2: This will walk you through signing in and booking equipment and facilities. 

▶️How to Extend your reservation in Connect 2.
This will show you how to extend an existing reservation (if you already have equipment that has been checked out to you). 
If this doesn't work, email Mark Harris to extend your reservation.

Equipment can be checked out for 3 days at a time. Take advantage of this by checking out your camera with enough time prior to your intended use to charge the batteries! Each battery takes 30-45 minutes to charge. Reserve your camera the night before, put your batteries on charge and it's 100% when you need it!



📺How to make a booking in Connect2

Important note: Your booking needs to cover the entire duration of the time that you need the equipment. Making a second booking for the same equipment will not work because the first booking shows up as a late return and the second one will expire 2 hours after the equipment is not picked up!

If this doesn't work, email Mark Harris and ask to have your reservation extended. Be sure to include the return day and time in your email.

Failure to return equipment as scheduled will result in a strike on your access and/or eventual suspension of equipment privileges, which may affect your course grades.
