Once you’ve requested your equipment and been notified by email that it is ready for pickup, you can retrieve the requested items from the Service Desk.
Laptops & associated accessories have a loan period of 4 days.
Cameras & associated accessories have a loan period of 7 days.
Remember, equipment must be picked up and returned during service hours. Do not leave items at an unattended desk. Doing so will result in a $50 mishandling charge.
Note: If you have requested multiple items, please note that they may not be pulled and held for you at the same time, depending on availability. Your email notification should indicate which item is available for you.
