Media Loan

Media Loan supports instructional media integration across the curriculum by instructing and circulating media equipment to all currently registered Students and employed Faculty and Staff.

Spring 2020 Media Loan equipment returns

To support students in spring quarter, Media Loan created extended loan periods and waived fines and fees through evaluation week. Borrowers are 100% responsible for the replacement value of any lost or damaged loaned equipment.

All media equipment must be returned before spring quarter ends, so that it can be quarantined, inventoried and repaired as needed prior to the beginning of summer quarter.

Our expert staff will address equipment hygiene. Please do not attempt to disinfect equipment yourself or send it through the mail.

If you borrowed equipment from Media Loan, please check your email inbox regularly. In advance of your appointment, instructions will be sent to all borrowers on how to return equipment while observing health and safety procedures.

The short version:

  • Check your email
  • Schedule an appointment
  • Wear a mask and observe social distancing (6 feet minimum) while on campus
  • Be on time to your appointment
  • Late appointments will not be honored to ensure safety

Media Loan, and the front doors of the Library Building, will be open for spring equipment returns on these days/times:

  • Monday June 1, 10 am to 3 pm equipment drop off by appointment only
  • Wednesday June 3, 12 pm to 6 pm equipment drop off by appointment only
  • Friday June 5, 10 am to 3 pm equipment drop off by appointment only

From Red Square, please enter the Library building through the door designated for entry, and exit the door designated for exit. There will be signage to guide you towards Media Loan.

If these days/times for equipment return are not a possibility due to illness, travel, or your final projects, we want to work with you to find a solution. Please contact Media Loan as soon as possible at

Late Fines

Return equipment on time so other students can use it. As an extra incentive, Media Loan charges late fines to encourage prompt return. Avoid late fines by returning or renewing equipment before it comes due. Need more incentive? Learn how late fines are assessed and what happens when you keep stuff WAY overdue.
