USS Technology Service Desk Equipment Checkout Policies

Tags tsd ussct


The User Support Services Classroom Technology circulation desk (USSCT) offers equipment checkout, and this document outlines the basic checkout policies.

These policies may be reviewed and revised at any time.


Equipment Checkout

USSCT lends equipment and provides services to UO faculty, students, and staff for purposes directly related to course instruction wherein students earn credit. There is no charge to borrow equipment for these purposes. Some categories of equipment can be delivered to classrooms for instruction and other types are for pickup only at the circulation desk.

USSCT does not allow reservations to provide equipment for non-instructional use, or, events or classes without a course reference number (CRN).

Non-instructional (or non-CRN) related equipment and service needs are supported by UO Scheduling & Event Services (541-346-6000 or for on-campus events.
