Tool Loans


Tool Loans is a great resource for students looking to do some extra work on their own time. In addition to standard power and hand tools like cordless drills, hammers, pliers, and wrenches, students can borrow patch kits for critique rooms, sewing machines, heat guns, power supplies, mannequins and other equipment. 

Students and faculty wishing to loan equipment must present a valid student or faculty ID card and fill out appropriate forms. Unless otherwise negotiated, the loan period agreed upon is 24 hours. Items borrowed must be returned during open hours. If a borrower attempts to return an item and Tool Loans is closed, the borrower is responsible for the tools until Tool Loans reopens (as per posted hours). For more information, dial Ext. 588, or visit Tool Loans in Room 265.
