  • Inventory is available on a limited basis. Depending on general campus activity and demand, we reserve the right to limit the number of simultaneous and repeat rentals to provide equitable support for the entire University.
  • Academic and event use has priority over student groups: and in some cases, confirmation of availability may be withheld until one week before the event, regardless of how far in advance the request is made.
  • A minimum one week notice is required to reserve equipment.
  • Equipment training is available.
  • Student group is responsible for damaged or stolen equipment.
