Equipment Loan

Students, faculty and staff may reserve equipment using the form below. We will do our best to accommodate borrowing requests without a reservation; however, we cannot guarantee availability without a prior reservation.

The maximum loan period is seven days but will vary depending on others reservations. Equipment is not renewable and back-to-back reservations will be canceled. Please use a Buffalo State e-mail address when completing the form.

Two Hour Loan

There are a number of PC laptops and Chromebooks available for in-library use. These laptops are available for two hours and can be renewed for an additional two hours. To check out a two hour laptop, present your Bengal ID at the Circulation Desk.

Borrower’s Requirements

Only patrons who present a valid Bengal ID card are eligible to borrow equipment. In addition, patrons must have a library account in good standing with the Equipment Loan department (under $5.00 in fines), and sign the Loan Agreement every time equipment is checked out.


The patron who checks out the equipment is solely responsible for its safe return in good condition and will be held financially liable for theft, loss, or damage. Equipment must be checked in by a library staff member. Library staff will verify that the equipment was returned in good condition and that no accessories are missing.

Overdue Fines/ Replacement Costs

Overdue fines: $5.00 per day

Unpaid fines can result in suspension of borrowing privileges, cancellation of registration, blocked transcripts, and delayed graduation.
Patrons who return equipment late - two times during a semester - will have their borrowing privileges revoked until the next semester. If equipment is seven days overdue, we will make three attempts to contact you by phone and e-mail. If we do not hear from you after these attempts, the full replacement costs of the equipment will be assessed to your library account.
