How to return checked out equipment

At this time, all due dates for materials and equipment loaned from the Thomas G. Carpenter Library, the ITS Help Desk, and the Center for Instruction and Research Technology (CIRT) have been extended until April 16, 2021, and no fines or holds will be imposed.

If a technology device (laptop, chargers, webcams, hotspots, etc.) must be 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 for a minimum of 96 hours 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.
