  • Semester breaks (including Summer)
  • College holidays
  • Fridays proceeding a break
  • Sundays students return from breaks

Camera Loan Policies

Patrons are allowed to checkout equipment for a period of 72 hours. On the third day, loaned equipment must be returned by 10 p.m.  We have instituted a "Two-strike policy" that helps ensure timely returns, and provides equal access to equipment for patrons depending upon these resources.

How strikes are issued

If a patron fails to return equipment by 10 p.m. on the due date, a strike is issued. Please note that if there are missing components  to the equipment, the return is incomplete and thus, not returned. If a patron fails to return the equipment by 10 p.m. the following day, a second strike is issued. The patron is then banned from Camera Loans for a period of 30 days, and Campus Safety is contacted. The equipment is considered as stolen, and will remain as such until all components are returned to the Camera Loan desk.
