Who can check out equipment?Basic camera and audio equipment are available for checkout to any UAB faculty, staff or student with a UAB One Card. Professional camera kits are also available for rent for university-related projects. Please make an equipment request at least 48 hours in advance.
If you are a student enrolled in one of our approved media-based courses, we have equipment specifically reserved for you. Your instructor will provide you with more information at the beginning of your course.
Any equipment you check out on a Friday must be returned by the following Monday before 10AM.
What about weekends?
Late fines are $15 a day per checkout. If you can't get the equipment back to us in time, email or give us a call immediately. We take this very seriously. If we have to call you, then you lose your checkout privileges for the semester. Any unpaid fines at the end of the semester transfers to your UAB student account and must be paid to enroll for the next semester.
What if I turn the equipment in late?
