Equipment Loan

The Equipment Loan Program launched on January 14, 2008, along with the start of the first Digital Media Lab in the Loyola Information Commons, and has expanded to mirror services and available equipment at the Water Tower Campus as well. The program was created as an opportunity to put digital media resources into the hands of students by reducing the financial barriers associated with accessing technology.

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. The loan program affords students, who are currently active in coursework, the ability to take advantage of the wide array of resources that might not otherwise be available to them individually. 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 available to active faculty and staff individually with similar intents focused on cultivating rich, multi-media for the benefit of the Loyola Community.

How much does it cost to use the Equipment Loan Program?

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. The exception to this is when equipment is returned late, damaged, lost or stolen.
