To check out any piece of equipment you must present two (2) forms of photo ID. The first must be your current Wiscard. The second must be an ID that has been issued by an official government agency (e.g. driver's license, passport) and has both a photo and signature.

All borrowers are limited to twenty (20) laptop checkouts per semester (including summer semester). This quota applies only to laptops and not other types of equipment available through the Equipment Checkout System (ECS). You can check your remaining laptop quota from the 'My Account' tab on UW InfoLabs Equipment Checkout System.

$20 per day will be charged for every day or portion of every day that the item is overdue that the facility is open.

Fines for overdue items begin to accrue immediately after the checkout location closes (or at midnight if the location is open past midnight) on the day that the item is due.

The top website also provides information on other equipment that can be borrowed or rented.
