How to Request Equipment

Classroom Media Assistance loans equipment to both faculty/staff and students.
Faculty/staff equipment is available from Chafee 217, Swan 301, Quinn 215/217 and the lower level of the Carothers Library (LL4).
Faculty and staff can request an equipment reservation by:

  • Visiting CMA's main office in the Lower Level of the Library in LL4 (the Computer Lab) and fill out an Equipment Reservation Sheet.
  • Calling 874-4278, and make a reservation over the phone

All student equipment is checked in and out through Swan 301 (Language Learning Resource Center) only. Student reservations, pick-ups and returns are all done in Swan 301. Phone reservations are not accepted.
