Checkout Equipment

Overview

Checkout equipment is available to UST Faculty and Staff for off-campus use and on-campus locations where technology is not built in or cannot be delivered. Students are restricted from using this service. Students may be granted access to equipment if a faculty or staff member is willing to reserve and take responsibility for the equipment. Equipment can be checked out for a maximum of 2 weeks.

All items checked out on the St. Paul Campus may be picked up and returned to Tech DeskToo, OEC LL-8 during Tech DeskToo hours. All items checked out on the Minneapolis Campus may be picked up and returned to the Scholars walk-up service counter in Opus Hall.

Please make all requests for checkout equipment at a minimum of 72 business hours before your intended use date.

Laptops
PC and Mac Laptops are available for short-term use by faculty and staff. IRT has a limited number of laptops available so we ask that they are not requested for period of more than 2 weeks. The checkout laptops come standard with mouse, wireless card, power adapter, network cable. The standard software packages installed include Microsoft Office and Internet Explorer. If specialty software is needed, please specify in your request and contact your Technology Consultant.

Projectors
Portable LCD Projectors include a carrying case, power cord, and VGA cable. Two things to keep in mind:

  • You will need a laptop for PowerPoint or DVD/Streaming media playback.
  • You may also need a small speaker if the speakers on the laptop are not loud enough for your room.

Flash Video Camera Kits
Portable Video Cameras come with power adapters, battery pack, USB cord, 32 GB flash memory card and tripod.

Portable PA Kits
Portable Wireless PA Kits contain a mountable speaker with a wireless handheld microphone and wireless headset microphone and an iPod/laptop audio adapter.

The Portable Wired PA Kit contains a mountable speaker with a microphone, mic cord, and an iPod/laptop audio adapter.
These systems are best used in small spaces, for example, a classroom requiring speech reinforcement or media playback with a portable projector.
