New Loaner Equipment Policies

 In order to maximize the amount of equipment available to faculty and staff, the Technology Support Center has changed some policies regarding the laptops that are loaned out to faculty and staff. The key changes are as follows:

  • The maximum checkout period has been changed to one business day. All equipment checked out must be returned by the end of the next business day that the Technology Support Center is open.
  • Equipment can no longer be reserved in advance. Faculty and staff are encouraged to call 314-516-6034 on the day that they need the equipment to make sure that there is sufficient equipment in stock.
  • Our Laptop services are for faculty/staff waiting on a new computer, out of town University use or for desktop computers that are under service.
  • If equipment is not returned in accordance with the policy, the faculty/staff member who checked out the equipment will be billed for the replacement cost of the equipment not returned.
