Faculty and Full-Time Staff members may borrow equipment from any of the Service Counters. 
 
Teaching assistants, teaching graduates, Ph.D. candidates, and undergraduate students may borrow equipment for classroom instruction in one of two ways:
  1. A request can be made on their behalf by a Faculty or full-time staff member by logging into the Patron Portal (http://stonybrook.webcheckout.net/patron) and adding the designee’s name and SBU ID# as an authorization to release.  This information should be added as a “note to Checkout Center” during the reservation process.
  2. Alternatively, a request can be made on their behalf by a Faculty or full-time staff member by emailing classrooms@stonybrook.edu to add the designee to the Patron Portal, so they can make requests themselves. This messaging must contain the following information:
  • The name and Stony Brook ID Number of the student;
  • The academic purpose for the equipment being borrowed;
  • A list of the equipment being requested;
  • A statement in which the Faculty or full-time staff member takes full responsibility for the correct operation of the equipment, as well as it's safe and timely return to the originating Checkout Center.

Reference this link (Patron Portal Approval Letter) for a guide on how to craft the above letter of authorization.

Equipment borrowed must be returned to the Checkout Center it is requested from, and all designees will be asked to present their University ID card. In order to ensure no delays in delivery of service, please submit reservations with a minimum of 24 hours in advance before the pickup time.

Reservations are not confirmed until they appear as approved in your Patron Portal account.

For guidance on how to use the Patron Portal, follow the link(s) below:
