Spartans Promise

“I understand that not returning university property by designated date or intentionally damaging university property is a criminal offense, and that the lender will submit my name and ID number to the university police for further action that could lead to prosecution."


Borrowing Equipment from Media Services

Borrowing Equipment is a privilege available to currently enrolled NSU students ONLY.

To borrow equipment users must:

  • Have an NSU email address AND a Spartan card
  • Have NO outstanding library obligations (e.g., overdue books, fines on their account, etc.)
  • Use equipment for educational purposes only
  • Not personalize any of the equipment 

Other items to note:

  • Steelcase Charging Lanterns are available for use inside the library only; users must supply their own USB-C or USB-A charging cables.
  • A second item is only available for request if the two items are a camera and tripod.
  • Patrons must supply their own memory cards for use in the DSLR cameras.
Equipment Type   Lending Period
DSLR Cameras/Tripods      5 Days
Laptops      5 Days
Steelcase Charging Lanterns        2 hours LIBRARY USE ONLY


Equipment borrowers vow to take precautions with all equipment and agree to return equipment in the same condition as it was at the time of check out.

If an accident occurs, the user must contact a media center staff member immediately at (757) 823-2224 explaining the accident and damage.

Failure to comply can also result in the loss of library privileges. For example, losing the ability to reserve a study room, being fined for the late return of equipment, or being charged for the replacement cost of a purposefully damaged piece of equipment are all possible consequences of non-compliance with the above terms and conditions.
