Classroom Equipment Checkout

Equipment Checkout Guidelines

With your UCard, you can check out equipment for classroom presentations and meetings at no cost. Equipment available at the TechCenter includes:

  • Chromebooks
  • Chromebook Carts
  • Projectors (portable and on carts)
  • Miscellaneous AV equipment (speakers, cabling, extension cord reels, etc.)

All checkout equipment is provided:

  • For university-related purposes only (classroom presentations, meetings, coursework)
  • For current student, faculty, or staff members only


  • Chromebooks may be checked out for general use for 24 hours.
  • If you have a computer in for repair with ITSS, you may check out a Chromebook for the duration of your repair.
  • Chromebooks are managed by ITSS for security, which means you will not be able to install apps or save files to the device.
  • If the Chromebook is not returned on time, it will be remotely locked by ITSS.

Chromebook Carts (a rolling cart with 30 managed Chromebooks)

  • Chromebook Carts are available for campus groups such as orientation, training, or classwork.
  • You may bring the Chromebook Cart to your own space on campus but it may not be taken off campus.
  • If reserved overnight, the Chromebook Cart must be stored in a secure location.
  • Upon return, all Chromebooks must be replaced in the slots and plugged into chargers.
  • Reservations are required and can be made by emailing [email protected]

Mobile Lecture Capture Cart

Faculty and staff can reserve a mobile lecture capture cart to use. The mobile lecture cart can be reserved in advance and checked out for a 24 hour period.  It is equipped with:

  • Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) Camera with a hand-held remote
  • Boundary Microphone which can capture audio 25' away

The camera and microphone are connected to a laptop via USB cables. Some users may need to use a USB-C Hub, not included. 

The Cart can be picked up at the Tech Center. Returns can come to the TechCenter or Media Hub (Kathryn A. Martin Library 1st Floor).
