How to return checked out equipment

Starting May, 17, equipment loans in the Thomas G. Carpenter Library will only be available for use in the library. Equipment loaned before May 17, 2021 is due to be returned on July 6, 2021.


When a technology device (laptop, chargers, webcams, hotspots, etc.) is returned, please use the following process:

Step 1

Make a copy of any data you have on a checked out laptop before you return it. You will not be able to recover the data after you return it.

Step 2

Bring equipment to the Thomas G. Carpenter Library Information Desk. Returns can be accepted during the library open hours:


You will be required to fill out a form with your full name, N#, and phone number. A plastic bag will be provided for the equipment you are returning and the form to be placed into.


Once you have sealed the equipment in the bag, you will give it back to the staff member at the Information Desk.


At this point, your equipment return is complete.


The equipment you returned will be stored in a quarantined location before it is sanitized following established guidance from hardware vendors such as Apple, Dell, and Microsoft.


During this time, no returned equipment will be accessible.
