What is the Equipment Loan Program?
The Equipment Loan Program is established and maintained to best ensure equitable opportunity, access, and utilization of equipment by Loyola students primarily for individual, academic pursuits. These resources are intended to allow discovery of emerging and established equipment and tools, develop and create exciting content, deliver multimedia projects, or merely fulfill needs to maintain and seamlessly continue with tasks using available technology. Access is also available faculty and staff with the focus on cultivating rich, multi-media for the benefit of the Loyola Community.

The Equipment Loan Program is 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. However fines may be incurred in the event equipment is returned late, in unsatisfactory condition, lost, or unreturned.
