School of Communication Equipment Office

Equipment Checkout office

The School of Communication operates an Equipment Check-Out in the CHBS Building, Room 1004. A student wishing to checkout audio/visual equipment from the School of Communication (hereafter “School”) must be a major in the School or be actively enrolled in a School class that requires use of the equipment. Each student must sign a contract before they will be allowed to check out School A/V equipment. The equipment room is staffed by work study students who can check out media equipment, give brief tutorials on the equipment and monitor the studios and editing rooms on the first floor of the CHBS Building.

The office is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 8:00pm and on Friday from 8:00am to 5:00 pm. Weekend equipment checkout begins at 4:00 pm on Thursday-all equipment needs to be returned by 8:00 am the following Monday. There is a fine structure in place for late or damaged equipment.

Reservations for equipment can be made in advance by calling 540-831-6035 or by e-mailing
