Equipment borrowing begins Monday, February 6th, 2023, and concludes on
Friday, May 5th, 2023. All equipment borrowed must be returned at the designated time and day. Sign in and sign out is by reservation only.
* There is a late fee system in effect as of January 2021. The fee for late items is $2
per day per item. Students may be fined up to $800 for lost/damaged equipment. You
will not be able to register for classes, get transcripts, or receive your grades until the
fine is paid. *
All equipment signed out must be returned by 12:00 PM on the third academic day.
Whoever signs out department equipment is responsible for its return, and ought to be
the one returning it. If equipment is not returned on time, the student and the student’s professor will be emailed about the lateness. After reasonable attempts to recover late equipment have failed, the student’s borrowing privileges will be suspended commensurate with the lateness. If even after the suspension, the student fails to return overdue equipment, an Academic Hold will be placed on the student’s account. An Academic Hold means the student cannot register for classes and will not receive their grades until the hold is released. There is also a late fee system in place. The late fee is $2 per day per item until the equipment is returned. Lost/damaged equipment may result in up to $800 in fines. The late fee system is a hold on your academic account.
Use of media production equipment is restricted to Media Production students and is
limited to class projects; do not borrow department equipment for personal endeavors, unless cleared by a Media Production faculty member. Ottaway equipment is available for all Journalism students to use for their class assignments.
Digital Storytelling students can sign out the Zoom H1 handy recorder and the Ottaway
dSLRs, but only for their class assignments.
