Media Loan

Media Loan lends equipment to students who are using audio, video, photography, and presentation equipment for credit-generating work. Equipment is available to faculty and staff conducting college business. We also schedule media labs, circulate lab keys, and sell photo supplies. 

Our Remote Equipment Loan Policy

  • If your course or program is using equipment, your faculty will arrange the equipment reservation.
  • If you are doing an Independent Learning Contract (ILC), you must have Media Services approval in order to use Media Loan equipment. Email us to coordinate equipment check out and return.
  • Do not attempt to disinfect equipment yourself. Our staff will address equipment hygiene.
  • Media Loan does not ship equipment. All equipment must be picked up in person.
  • Prearranged shipping returns may be accepted at the borrower's risk. Email us for specific return shipping instructions.
  • We will grant you an Extended Loan during remote operations without completing a separate request form. Watch your email for checkout confirmations and return notices. Late fines will apply!
