During Winter break class sessions, the Student/Intern will need to provide proof of the following:

  • 2. That the equipment is needed for a class project & during class time
  • 3. A letter from the professor on official SJSU letterhead, specifying: Need, duration, & equipment.


To better serve you, the IRC is undergoing a remodel.
We are back in our space, in IRC 112, but will continue to go through minor upgrades. Please bear with us.

As of 10/8/18 We have temporarily Reopened Viewing Rooms 1 and 2 for the viewing of course reserved videos.
