The Equipment Loan Store houses a large array of bookable film and television, music and photography equipment, ranging from HD quality film and broadcast cameras, to a Phase One digital medium format camera, a Soundfield studio microphone, and Bowens GM500R studio lights.
Equipment is bookable by students and staff, either individually, or in groups. All that is required to loan equipment is your UH ID card. Bookings must be made online at least 24 hours before collection. Loans are made for a 24 hour period as standard (unless agreed otherwise by the technical team).
As a relatively limited amount of equipment has to service the whole school, it is essential that items are returned promptly. As a result, it has been agreed by the school that late equipment will be charged £30 (per day). Please note that this policy is strictly enforced, so any delay due to unforeseen circumstances must be immediately reported to (and agreed with by) a technical staff member in order to avoid this fine (contact information can be obtained above).
Insurance against loss or damage is not covered by the University policy; you are responsible for the care and safety of loaned equipment, and may be held responsible for any damage and loss.
Terms & Conditions
The equipment that is being loaned is the responsibility of the student member or student group who has signed for the equipment. A university identification card must be produced and scanned to make sure that you are eligible to loan the equipment.
This student member or student group is responsible for the proper care and timely return of the equipment.
You are expected to return the equipment in a tidy manner, including kits in designated bags and cables properly wrapped. Please be aware the equipment must all be returned at once.
You are expected to contact the loan store before your allocated return slot using the contact details found above if any unforeseen circumstances prevent the return of the equipment. A daily penalty of £30 is incurred for late return of kit.
Any losses or damages must be reported to the loan store staff as soon as possible via the contact details found above. Any equipment missing or damaged due to misuse during a student loan will be paid for by that student or student group.
An induction must take place before the loan of any specialist equipment from the loan store.
You must ensure the safety of your equipment and others at all times.
The equipment is not insured against misuse or avoidable accident.
Do not attempt to repair/or have repaired any equipment without consulting the loan store staff. Please speak with the technical team before cleaning any of the equipment as this can often result in damage.
This equipment must not be left accessible in unlocked rooms. You are responsible for all equipment while it is in your possession and it must be locked away securely when not in use.
You must not loan or rehire any equipment to a third party.
The equipment will remain the absolute property of the University of Hertfordshire throughout the loan. All equipment is tested before the loan, but it is your responsibility to check the equipment is in complete and working order.
