To rent equipment, patrons must show a valid URI ID. Names and URI ID numbers are matched against our computer records. If a name/number does not match what is in our system, equipment will not be issued.

There are also special loans only available to Faculty and Staff through the Faculty and Staff Special Loans Inventory.

Renewing a Reservation

If at the end of the rental period, a patron has not finished his/her work that requires this equipment, the patron may renew the reservation if all the following conditions are met:

  1. The equipment is returned to CMA before it is due (renewals cannot be made over the phone).
  2. There are no conflicting reservations on the equipment for the extended period being requested or there are no names on the waiting list for that equipment.
Late Return Policy

Please see the article on CMA's Service Level Agreement.

It is important to get the equipment back on time because other faculty or staff members may have reservations and need the equipment. The following policy applies for ALL patrons borrowing the special loans equipment whom rent equipment from Classroom Media Assistance:
Although a police policy cannot be enforced for faculty and staff members at this time, if equipment rented from Classroom Media Assistance is not returned later than 7 days by a faculty or staff member of the URI Kingston campus, Department Heads will be contacted to resolve the issue and return the much needed inventory.

Failure to return equipment impacts future reservations made by other individuals. We request that equipment is returned on time to accommodate other users

  • In the case of repeated abuse of equipment returns by faculty or staff members, the department chair will be contacted if the instructor fails to return equipment more than twice in a semester. If failure to return equipment results in its loss through negligence, that instructor will lose privileges for the remainder of the semester.
  • Student penalties for late returns are covered in the articles about those types of equipment. See Film Studies Equipment Inventory, Communication Studies Equipment and CMA Student Equipment articles.
Broken Equipment or Equipment That is Missing Parts

CMA is not responsible for any personal belongings or media left with the equipment. It is important to make sure you have removed any media (tapes or personal hard drives) from the equipment before it is returned. If the equipment is subsequently checked out to another patron, any media may be inadvertently erased.
