OSCR Gear to Go Request
Fill out each semester, 72 hours in advance of checking out equipment
Gear-to-Go Center equipment is available to current students, faculty, and staff of the University of Arizona. Borrowers of equipment will be required to present a valid UA CatCard at time of pickup. In order to become eligible to reserve and check out equipment, borrowers must fill out the Gear-to-Go Center access form and agree to the terms and conditions of the Gear-to-Go Center. Borrowers may have their eligibility suspended or revoked due to violations of any of the Gear-to-Go policies. Any such penalties, including the length of suspensions, will be judged on a case-by-case basis.
Check out of Gear-to-Go equipment is free to UA students, faculty, and staff. Borrowers assume financial responsibility for equipment that is damaged, lost, or stolen. See Gear-to-Go Policies in Documentation.
