What is the DMC?
The Digital Media Center (DMC) is a multimedia lab space and an equipment, printing, and knowledge resource for students interested in exploring creative uses of emerging media and technology to communicate their ideas.

More information about the DMC can be found on our JHU student affairs website.
Who can use the DMC?
To use most DMC resources, such as equipment checkouts & in-lab workstations, you must first become a "member" of the DMC.

To attend DMC workshops and events or use our Pharos laser printers, you must simply be a Johns Hopkins student with an active J-Card.
How do I become a member & is it free?
If you are an eligible student, come into the DMC anytime we are open and let the front desk staff know you'd like to become a member. We will show you a short orientation video and enroll you in our booking system. Your DMC Membership will be active as long as you remain a JHU student.

Membership is free for:
  • Full-time students in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences (KSAS), Whiting School of Engineering (WSE), or Peabody.
Membership costs a one-time $50 fee for students in:
  • KSAS or WSE, and are part-time
  • Advanced Academic Program (AAP), even if full-time KSAS
  • School of Medicine (JHMI/SOM)
  • Carey Business School
  • School of Public Health
  • School of Nursing
  • School of Education
  • School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS)
Membership is not available to:
  • Postdoctoral Fellows
  • Visiting Scholars
  • Faculty & Staff
The membership fee is a one-time $50 charge which can be paid online with a credit card through your phone's web browser when you become a member.
My booking can be how long?
Up to 3 days upon making your initial booking, with up to three 1-day renewals upon request.

If you require an extended checkout time, please email digitalmedia@jhu.edu with your request.
How do I renew my booking?
To renew your items for 1 additional day, first check that the equipment is available using the scheduler below. If you see that the items are available, please call us at 410-516-3817 during our regular business hours and ask to renew your items.
How do I get authorized on equipment?
Be a DMC member and ask one of our staff members which item you'd like authorizations on. As long as a qualified staffer and the equipment are available, we will then train you on how to use it which usually includes a short video and a one-on-one hands-on training. We may ask that you make an appointment for more advanced items like the Audio Studio.
How do I print at the DMC?
The DMC offers a variety of professional-quality self-service printing and imaging tools, from photo and document printing to 3D-printing and large-format poster printers.

Traditional document printing is available at our in-lab Pharos Kiosk, and laser prints B&W or Color on letter, legal, and magazine sized paper.
How do I 3D-print at the DMC?
The DMC offers self-service 3D printing on Prusa i3 MK3S printers with a selection of filaments available for purchase (charged by the hour). You must first be authorized on the 3D printers in order to reserve them. Set up an appointment at the front desk or contact us.
I want to check out a camera. How does that work?
After becoming a member of the DMC, you can check out a simple point and shoot camera without the need for an authorization. To checkout more advanced cameras like DSLRs, you must first complete an authorization on our intro-level photo/video cameras (Canon t5i/Canon vixias). You can ask our staff about higher level camera authorizations if you are interested.

If you are not yet a member, please plan accordingly as this whole process of getting a DSLR can take up to an hour for both the member orientation and camera authorization.
