FAA Mark
This article applies only to Faculty, Staff and Students of the College of Fine and Applied Arts (FAA).

The MITS South Help Desk maintains a variety of hardware products designated as "loaners."


These products are intended to be used for University-related business, academic duties, testing before a potential purchase, and short term loan while equipment is repaired or replaced. The program is not to be used to permanently replace damaged, lost, or stolen equipment. The borrower must present a valid I-Card upon receipt of loaner equipment. By borrowing one of these items, the borrower acknowledges their agreement to these guidelines. All loans are subject to availability of equipment for the time period specified. If the equipment that is requested is not available, Technology Services at FAA will contact you to discuss potential alternatives.


  • Any faculty or staff member in the College of Fine and Applied Arts is eligible to check out one piece (or more) of equipment, based on the following criteria. Faculty or staff outside of the College may make arrangements with the MITS South Help Desk, if equipment is available.
  • Undergraduate students are currently not eligible for this program.
  • Graduate students are eligible for loaner equipment if requested by a faculty member. The faculty member should complete the loaner program request form for their students


Faculty/Staff members must reserve the equipment 24-hours in advance. Reservations can be made through the Loaner Agreement Form.


Equipment is loaned out Monday thru Friday during normal business hours, and is dependent on current inventory and availability. We offer Apple laptops, Windows laptops, iPad tablets, and some peripherals. 

Length of Loan:

The limits below are in place to ensure maximum availability of equipment. 

  • Laptops can be loaned out for a maximum of one month at a time.
  • Tablets can be loaned out for a maximum of two weeks at a time.
  • Audio / Video equipment can be loaned out for a maximum of one week at a time.

Quantity of Equipment Loaned:

Only one piece of equipment of each type will be loaned out to an individual at a time.

Personal Data:

All personal data (including but not limited to files, email, pictures, and documents) is the borrower's responsibility. After loaner hardware is returned by the user, machine will be re-imaged, which will remove all data from the device.


Borrowers are responsible for returning equipment on time, and in the same condition as when they received it. If there is damage to a device requiring the device to be replaced, the borrower is responsible for those costs.

To initiate conversation with an IT Pro to determine what equipment may fit your needs, please contact the MITS South Help Desk.
