Equipment Checkout Policy

The IT equipment checkout policy is designed to ensure that equipment is as broadly available as possible without limiting loan periods too much, provide priority access for students in classes, and to make sure that equipment remains in good working order.

  • A valid Husky Card and a photo ID (unless your picture is on your Husky Card) are required to checkout equipment
  • All equipment must be checked out in-person; you can't send somebody else over with your card for you
  • Students may not checkout more than one of any equipment type (for example, you can't check out 10 digital cameras at the same time)
  • Equipment loan periods are all one week (unless otherwise noted)
  • You are responsible for returning all equipment by the due-date issued at the time of check out
  • You may request an equipment renewal but the Helpdesk must assess renewal requests based on current equipment inventory levels.  We may not always be able to renew the equipment to you.
  • Items may only be renewed by phone or in person (no email) because our staff must confirm availability for you before renewing
  • Equipment is not available for checkout between quarters; we use this time to service and inventory everything
  • When you check something out, you assume personal financial liability for the item; don't give it to anyone else
  • Equipment bags often have little bits and pieces in them; be sure to return everything listed on the tag
  • Late returns may be subject to fines
  • Lost, broken, or stolen equipment will be subject to replacement and processing costs
