About the Program
What is the Equipment Loan Program?
The Equipment Loan Program (ELP) was launched on January 14, 2008, along with the start of the first Digital Media Lab (DML) in the Richard J. Klarchek Information Commons (IC). The DML is a space that was created to place digital media in the hands of students by reducing the financial barriers associated with accessing technology. With the opening of each of our two Digital Media Labs, both locations have become a sandbox for testing and exploration - encouraging faculty, staff and student early adopters to discover new technologies, develop new resources and ideas and find new ways to innovate in the classroom.
How much does it cost to use the Equipment Loan Program?
The Equipment Loan Program is included as part of a service covered by the Student Technology Fee paid upon enrollment in courses at Loyola University Chicago. There are no additional charges or costs associated with using the program - unless equipment is returned late, damaged or lost/stolen.
