We strive to be able to support you with technology in any of your academic and professional projects. Popular equipment rental types are listed below. For all types of equipment rentals, simply email Technology & Innovation at ti@davidson.edu with enough advance, and we'll get you set up!

Laptop Loaners

Technology & Innovation (T&I) provides a pool of Dell and Macintosh loaner laptops for faculty and staff use. The loaner laptops are to be used for college business. Laptops are available to faculty and staff and can be reserved by contacting the Support Center with your loaner laptop request three days prior to your anticipated need. Traveling faculty and staff have priority, and laptops are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

The normal loan period is five days, however, extended use may be arranged in advance.

You must log onto the campus network once before you take the laptop off-campus. You will do this when you pick-up the laptop at T&I Main (located at 213 N. Main Street), during regular business hours.

If you intend to board an airline with the laptop:

  • You must carry the laptop onto the plane (do not check it as luggage). The college insurance policy mandates that every precaution be taken to prevent theft. The laptop will be covered by college insurance provided that you abide by this policy.

Before returning the laptop to T&I you should uninstall any software you loaded and remove any data files you created.

Presentation Equipment

Data projectors, remote presenters, and webcams are available for loan. Contact the T&I Support Center so we can help you find the right equipment for your needs.

Multimedia Equipment 

T&I has multimedia equipment available to faculty and students for academic coursework and research. Equipment can be reserved for a class or research project following a consultation with an instructional designer. Simply contact the T&I Support Center to request a meeting with an instructional designer, and in your meeting, you can discuss what equipment will best fit your needs. Borrowers will be charged for the replacement of lost or damaged equipment.
