Loaner Equipment

LSAIT and the regional support groups often have equipment available for loan. The equipment can vary by support group, and some groups may give priority to their directly-supported departments over other departments, and often give priority to classroom support over individual needs.

Please contact your regional support group for an up-to-date list of available equipment. If you don't have or don't know your local regional support group, please contact the LSAIT Service Desk.

Computer Support Group (CSG) Loaner Equipment

No equipment has been specified as available for loan. Please check out the other regional support groups' sections.

Computing and Technology Support (CaTS) Loaner Equipment

CaTS has equipment that can be loaned out to users as needed. Loans are done on a first-come-first-served basis but you can request that they hold something for you. They loan for just about any length of time but loans exceeding 3 days requires CaTS management sign-off to ensure loaner equipment is available for others when needed. Classroom loans take priority over others so if a classroom is in need of equipment and you are requesting the same equipment for a non-classroom purpose then the classroom will get the equipment over your request.

CaTS has the following equipment to loan:

  • One Mac loaner (13" Apple Macbook)
  • Five Windows laptop loaners (various models)
  • Two portable projectors (Sony VPL-CX5)

To reserve equipment, cats-support@umich.edu and specify the equipment, how long you need it, and when you'll pick it up.

CaTS also has miscellaneous cables, adapters and the like. If you are in need of something please cats-support@umich.edu. Equipment can be picked up at 2428 Randall Lab.
