Equipment Loans

IT Loaning exists to support academic and other programs of the College.

Through short-term loans, we provide classes with equipment to create multimedia projects, especially documentary or research videos.

Through long-term loans, we support academic departments with additional equipment, thus augmenting the resources available for faculty. We also provide specialized software for longer-term projects such as complex data analyses, or year-long video projects.

If you would like to borrow equipment, please email your request to:  itloaning@bowdoin.edu
