Borrowing Equipment or Setup Request

Instructional Services offers a fleet of equipment loanable to staff and faculty members, as well as students. Several laptops and digital LCD projectors are available, as well as a host of other equipment, a full list of which can be found below.  For larger pieces of equipment, large events, or just an unfamiliarity with computer and a/v equipment assistance with setting up from a staff member is also available.

If you are interested borrowing an item please submit a  special event request through the FAS qbic system.  Be sure to include your name, a full listing of what you'd like to borrow, the date and duration of your request, and a way to contact you.  We ask that you please submit your request at least three days in advance, as equipment is distributed first come, first served, and this will ensure that equipment is available on the day you need it and give us time for processing.  Equipment is loaned out a maximum of one week, with an option of a one week extension.  If you need your loan longer than this please let us know as early as possible as special arrangements needs to be made.
