Rental items will be available for pick up between 12 – 4 p.m.
*** Under our new policy, we will not be allowing pick up and drop off outside of these set hours. These specific hours allow us to ensure equipment is returned and in proper conditions to be rented out the same day.
We work hard to ensure that our rentals can be free of charge for all students to rent out. In order to best ensure that our rentals are taken care of and returned in proper condition, we are shifting to a new system to regulate our rentals. Please take note:
If equipment is not returned in the proper condition or is late, the student/organization will be held accountable.
1st offense: Written warning via email to student organization
2nd offense: The student/organization’s rental privileges will be revoked for 1 week
3rd offense: The student/organization’s rental privileges will be revoked for 1 month
4th offense: The student/organization’s rental privileges will be revoked for 1 semester
In order for accountability, groups will be required to fill out a check out sheet for each rental. Thank you for your patience in this process.
Additionally, by viewing the Google Calendar “Tech Rentals” before submitting your request, you may be able to see if your items are already being rented for that day.
