The serious stuff (Our policy)
  • You are financially responsible for damaged or lost items and parts. Normal wear and tear is okay.
  • A hold can be placed on your academic record and registration if replacement fees are not paid.
  • Don’t be late! There is a late fee of $10 per day for AV items, and $5 per hour for laptops ($10 in fines will suspend your library privileges until paid.) All cables and accessories must be returned to avoid late charges.
  • You must have a PolyCard to check out equipment.
  • Please check the laptop software page to see a list of all the software installed on each laptop.

Enjoy and please treat our equipment with the respect it deserves so that it continues to function well for the next student to use it. Also, please give us your feedback — we like that!
