As a COHDS affiliate, you can borrow a wide array of audiovisual equipment – including, among other items, various recorders, cameras, headphones and related accessories.

How to borrow:

You’ll find our equipment catalogue on our COHDS Equipment Loan Form. To request items, fill out the form in question. You will receive an email confirmation from our lab technician to arrange for pick up (please allow for a few business days). The equipment can be picked up at our COHDS main desk in the computer lab (LB-1042).

Loan guidelines:

Please note that reservations for equipment are made on a first come, first serve basis. Digital cameras, due to limited numbers, can be reserved for a period of no more than four days, unless a special request is made.

Affiliates are responsible for returning equipment in the same condition that they received it and must report any technical problems encountered while using our equipment. Additionally, our affiliates are financially responsible for replacement costs of any lost or damaged equipment.

We regret that we cannot accommodate last-minute borrowing requests, requests to borrow equipment made outside working hours or requests to borrow equipment during COHDS annual closure from mid-June to late August.

For any questions, please email
