Terms & Conditions
No University property may be removed from University premises without the approved Risk Assessment (for items that require RA) or a premade and confirmed booking.
The borrower undertakes to ensure that the equipment is returned to the University in the same condition in which it was removed. No reconfiguration, modification, dismantling or removal of parts is permitted.
Items used for bona fide coursework are covered by the University's insurance policy. Where the University's insurance does not cover the use or extent of loss of the equipment, the borrower is financially liable for all loss or damage including any excesses payable under University insurance arrangements.
In order to claim for equipment losses under the University's property insurance policy the Department must (a) demonstrate that the equipment was listed in the University's inventory; (b) demonstrate that the borrower had been granted written permission to remove the equipment from University premises prior to the loss occurring; (c) where the loss occurred as a result of theft from a residence, vehicle or other premises, produce a copy of a police report.
The University accepts no liability for any damage to third party property and/or persons arising out of the use of the equipment by the borrower and the borrower agrees to indemnify the University against all third party claims, actions, and demands howsoever arising from the use of the equipment.
Any carriage/transport costs arising from the removal or return of the borrowed equipment shall be borne by the borrower.
The equipment remains at all times the property of the University of Greenwich and the University reserves the right to recall the equipment at short notice if it is required for other University business.
Late or improper (damages, signs of negligence) returns of equipment may incur a temporary revoked access to the previously borrowed item. In certain cases, the borrower might be required to redo their competency training to be able to book the item again. Revoked access or training will be considered on a case to case basis, upon consultation with a leading tutor. The student will always have access to the basic equipment, to allow them the possibility of the completion of their coursework.
Any changes of the equipment pick up and drop off times (including both early and late drop off) have to be confirmed via email or phone to the FTV team (firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 8331 8639).
Non-return of equipment is a serious matter and shall be dealt with as a breach of discipline by the student. If the non-return of equipment is not explained to the satisfaction of the University authorities the equipment will be considered stolen and the University will bring disciplinary charges against the borrower, and may at its sole discretion refer the matter to the police for recovery of the equipment and prosecution of the borrower.
The borrower should submit this authorisation to caretaking/security when leaving University premises and must retain this for as long as necessary, i.e. in the case of loaned equipment is returned to the University.
This authorisation is valid only for the School of Design and for the period stated above. It must be returned immediately if recalled by the Faculty for any reason.
The Kit Room operates between 09:00-16:00, no equipment pick ups or drop offs are accepted outside the operating times.
The borrower is responsible to check all the equipment before leaving the area to ensure that all the correct equipment is provided and in working order, including any accessories.
The equipment must be returned in the presence of a staff member; in cases of students working in Stockwell Street Studio 1 and Studio 2, equipment still must be delivered back to the kit room.
All faults found must be reported at the time of booking return.
All equipment must be picked up and returned at the selected time, (unless arranged otherwise with a member of staff) by the person listed in the booking form.
A booking consisting of multiple items must be picked up and returned at the same time. (including peripherals, memory cards, readers, etc.)
