Gear library guidelines:

  • Gear must be returned within ONE week of pickup.   
  • If your gear is not returned on time and/or is returned in poor condition, your future access to the library will be impacted as follows:
    • First offence will result in access to the Gear Library on a probationary basis only.
    • Second offence will result in 2-week suspension of Gear Library access.
    • Third offense will result in termination of Gear Library access.
  • The Gear Library is available to the entire RSENR community – please treat it with respect. If you are unsure whether our gear is fit for certain labs or activities, please contact Brittany LeBeau or Emily LeForce directly.
  • Gear must be picked up and returned at the date/time indicated in your request form. If you do not pick up/return gear at the indicated time, you may forfeit your rental. If plans change and you need to adjust your pick-up/return time, please email Brittany or Emily.
  • Gear must be picked-up and returned to the Gear Library (located in RSENR Student Services – Room 220C) during Student Services office hours (9am-4:30pm) only. If you cannot return gear by 4:30pm, plan to return it the following business day. Please do NOT leave gear outside the Dean’s Office.
