Borrowing Portable Equipment
To arrange for use of classroom media equipment, call 650-3300 or stop by
our Equipment Loan Desk in Haggard Hall 114. You can pick up equipment
you have reserved and request
training on equipment use, classroom orientation or assistance. We will assist you in determining
the most convenient way to obtain equipment on the day you need it. At time of checkout, be sure to bring your Western Card.
Plan on 10 - 15 minutes to checkout equipment, and to return equipment. When you return equipment ATUS does not provide "drop-off," service; equipment is officially checked in after it is examined and we have confirmed all parts and pieces are in the bag.
Be prepared to transport equipment by walking to and from our office, as there is now just one 20-minute load/unload parking place near our office, between Haggard and College Hall. The space is not exclusive to ATUS patrons; it is available to whomever gets there first.
goal is to make equipment available to as many people as possible throughout
each day. You can assist by picking up and returning equipment
on time, and by contacting us in advance if you will be canceling
