Equipment

RHA offers a wide variety of equipment to be used across campus for programming. This service is available to Hall Councils & Residence Life Student and Professional Staff.

Take a look at all we have to offer here!

Requesting Equipment

All requests must:

  • Be made using the online form at least TWO WEEKS in advance to your event date.

  • If you are having a wide-scale program, put in a request as soon as you think you will need equipment.

  • Equipment is on a first-come first-serve basis. Note that the first person who requests the equipment will receive it.

  • If no communication is made with the Director of Operations within SEVENTY-TWO hours of receiving a message that your request has been approved, your request is subject to being canceled.

Picking up Equipment

  • The pick-up method will depend on the amount of equipment and size.

  • During the pick-up/drop-off process, any further equipment instructions will be discussed.

  • Equipment return will be discussed and agreed upon either before or during pick-up.

If your request is approved, the Director of Operations will set up a meeting with you to pick up the equipment from the Office or drop it off at the respective dorm using the RHA gold cart.

Using Equipment

Once equipment leaves RHA's possession, it is YOUR hall's/organization's responsibility.

  • Please ensure you're being careful with equipment and using it properly.

  • If anything becomes damaged or broken in your possession, please contact the Director of Operations ASAP.

  • If you aren't entirely sure how to use the equipment, please contact the DO and ask any questions!

Returning Equipment

If the equipment is returned dirty or damaged an equipment mishandling notice will be assessed against your Hall/Organization and a fee may be charged.

  • For dirty or broken equipment, there may be a $25.00 flat fee for all equipment and damages as needed for repairs. This will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

  • If a return appointment is missed without a 24-hour warning to the Director of Operations, an equipment mishandling notice will be assessed against your Hall/Organization.

Equipment Mishandling Notices

We understand that everyone is human and mistakes happen. We have decided to change our strike system into an equipment mishandling system in order to reflect that.

  • After two or more mishandling notices, a meeting is required with the Director of Operations. This meeting will be to discuss the future of equipment checkout and what the next steps would be for your organization/hall.

  • Each equipment mishandling notice will go against a specific hall/organization and their subunit within it (ex: RAs, Hall Council, Professional Staff)

  • If a significant mishandling notice or mishandling of equipment after meeting withthe DO occurs, your organization/hall's checkout privileges will be subject to be revoked for the remainder of the semester.

Wow, that was a lot to digest! With that, you're ready to checkout equipment.

Head over to the form, and the Director of Operations will be in contact with you soon!
