Equipment is available for rent by academic units, administrative units, research units, and registered student groups.

We cannot rent to individuals or off-campus groups unless they are sponsored and authorized by a campus department.

Groups may be able to reserve equipment through Student Center & Event Services at the time of a room/space reservation.

Pick-Up & Return

All equipment available at the Classroom Technologies office for will-call only.

Classroom Technologies staff can train the user on set up and operation of the equipment, but it is the users’ responsibility to transport the equipment, set it up on site, and return it on time.

Users assume responsibility for lost, stolen, or damaged items, and will be recharged for the cost of replacing or restoring any items to their original condition.

Equipment rented for evening events should be picked up before 4:30pm and returned the following business day before 12pm (noon).

Weekend rentals must be picked up by 4:30pm on Friday and returned the following Monday before 12pm (noon).

Daily Rates

Rental equipment is charged at a daily rate, regardless of whether it's reserved for one hour or ten.

Short Notice

All equipment orders placed within three business days of the pickup date will incur an additional day’s rental fee.

Please note that orders sent in after 5pm are not considered “received” until the following business day.


Cancellations and changes are accepted at any time and can be made without charge up to 24 hours before the event start time. Classroom Technologies does charge in full for equipment cancelled within 24 hours of the event.

Special Event Services

Classroom Technologies requires at least one week's notice for special events requiring more detailed planning, large amounts of equipment, or other operational considerations.

In most cases, we will also want to make sure you have thoroughly discussed your event details with Student Center & Event Services.

If a special event cannot be accommodated, we can provide event planners with a list of external vendors to work with directly.


The following are available at no charge, per instructor, per course:

  • One wireless microphone system
  • One portable document camera
  • One VHS deck

For other equipment, quarter-long rentals are generally available for instructors at a reduced fee equal to 10 days rental.
