Portable Equipment

Portable equipment is available for checkout from Media Services and the Learning Commons. For events held in the Danna Center, please request equipment from Student Life and Ministry.

 

Loaning Procedures

 Navigate through the sections below to learn how to request portable equipment.

Learning Commons Semester-long Equipment Checkouts

  • If you are a student and need to request a laptop, iPad, or wifi hotspot for the semester, please fill out this form. We'll get back to you shortly about filling your request. We will not offer 6 hour loans of laptops at the front desk. We know that students who use our laptops regularly need them for the semester. 

Students, faculty, and staff may reserve AV equipment for setup or pickup from Media Services. All Media Services equipment reservations must be made at least two business days prior to the pickup/delivery date.

Browse our equipment list below for details about portable equipment available from Media Services. To reserve portable equipment from Media Services, please fill out our Equipment Request Form. You will receive an email confirmation after your request has been processed. 

Media Services also provides legacy equipment such as VHS decks, cassette players, slide projectors, and overhead projectors. Contact us to see if we have what you need!

 

Equipment Checkout Policy

  • All equipment is reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Equipment requests must be made at least two business days prior to equipment check-out.
  • request for equipment does not mean that the equipment is reserved. Media Services will send you a confirmation to your loyno email when your request has been processed or if we have further questions. Only after you receive the confirmation email to your loyno email address is the equipment reserved. 
  • Equipment may be checked out for up to one week. For long-term laptop loans, please contact the Learning Commons desk or fill out this form.
  • Equipment may be used only by members of the Loyola community (current students, faculty, and staff) for academic purposes.
  • All equipment must be picked up from the Media Services office by 4pm the day it is reserved for.
  • If not picked up the day it is reserved for, your reservation will be canceled.
  • All equipment must be dropped off to the Media Services office by 4pm the day it is due back. If you are late and must drop off after hours, please return it to an attendant at the Learning Commons desk and tell them it is for Media Services.
  • Equipment can NOT be picked up on weekends, holidays, or outside of Media Services' hours. 
  • Regarding equipment deliveries, Media Services can only leave equipment in a classroom if the instructor is there. If the instructor is more than 15 minutes late, the equipment will be removed, and will not be delivered again to that class that day.
  • It is expected that equipment will be treated with exceptional care. If equipment is returned to Media Services in faulty condition, the borrower or his/her department will be held responsible for repair or replacement. If the equipment is not returned at all, the borrower will be held responsible for its replacement. 
  • We reserve the right to refuse anyone the right to borrow our equipment.
  • The overdue fines for all equipment are as follows. Replacement fees for damaged or unreturned equipment are determined by the replacement cost of the equipment.

 

Web Conferencing Kits

Media Services also has a limited number of portable web conferencing kits for loan. For more information on these, see the Web Conferencing tab below or contact Media Services at mediasrv@loyno.edu. You can reserve a kit through the Equipment Request Form.

These kits include a Logitech Webcam, Lumens Document Camera, Jabra Speaker/Microphone, Tripod, and USB Hub (the USB hub is provided in case you need additional inputs). You will need a laptop or desktop computer along with this kit. If you do not have one, please request a PC Laptop separately.
