Equipment Check-out and Rental Services

Equipment check-out and rental services are provided at the Classroom Support Main Office, 1012 Turlington Hall (352)273-1550. To preserve equipment availability for all instructors, equipment may only be checked out for the duration of the class session. For rentals, or if a piece of equipment will leave campus or stay out overnight, an Equipment Loan Agreement Form must be completed and signed by a Dean, Director, or Department Chair, taking financial responsibility for the equipment, before the equipment can be released.

Equipment Check-out

*for use in instruction of UF Credit Courses only*

Portable equipment, including data projectors, laptop computers, DVD/VHS players, document cameras, audio tape and CD players, video cameras, and tripods, are available for checkout. Instructors must pick up equipment not more than one hour before class, and return it not more than one hour after class each day. A UF ID card must be presented when picking up equipment.

Instructors are advised that if they are not physically able to transport the needed equipment to their place of instruction or simply for convenience, they may, by prior arrangement, have a student from their course or under their supervision, or staff member from their department pick up and/or return the equipment on their behalf. Instructors and their departments are financially responsible for equipment checked out in their name at all times. Supervising faculty members may arrange for equipment check-out for thesis/dissertation defenses. Reservation for equipment is recommended to ensure availability
