Media Services Faculty & Staff Equipment Request
Faculty, staff and students may use equipment or access services without prior reservations during normal working hours. Requests for equipment and services are subject to availability. Items such as LCD Data Projectors are in high demand and are typically difficult to borrow without prior reservations. Whenever possible we recommend advanced reservations for all equipment and service requests.
All equipment is for on-campus use only. Equipment is loaned for a class or event period and returned immediately after use. You must pick-up and return equipment from our distribution locations (Media Labs) on campus. Overnight loans require an overnight form and Media Services approval of a secure storage space on campus.
Portable LCD Data/Computer projection systems are in high demand and consequently there are restrictions on reserving this equipment.. Faculty teaching regularly scheduled classes will have preference over any other uses. Students may only reserve the projection systems for use in a regularly scheduled class. The signature of the faculty member instructing the class is required.
The 94 Technology Enhanced Classrooms (TEC's) and Auditoria are scheduled through the normal classroom scheduling process. Media Services does not schedule access to these rooms, but does provide technical support for the installed multimedia equipment. If you are utilizing our Technology Classrooms, we strongly recommend you attend an orientation to familiarize yourself with the operation of our TEC's. Orientation workshops are set up at the beginning of each semester or at request.

Please make note that all equipment loans require a valid UMass Boston ID and the completion of the appropriate form
