How can an instructor reserve equipment for in-class use?

Reservations for faculty require 2 business days notice.

Some classroom equipment requires a reservation to be submitted. Equipment includes: 

  • Laptops
  • Video cameras
  • Portable projectors
Additionally, the equipment listed above also requires a CFOAP number to be submitted. There is no charge for equipment use in a classroom, but we do need the number in case there's any damage to equipment. 
Equipment not listed above does not require a reservation but one can be submitted. 
Please follow the steps below to submit a reservation:
