• Policies

University Media Services (UMS) provides media equipment, technical support, service and information to members of the Suffolk University community who wish to use audio, video, and presentation technologies in the classroom, for campus activities, learning, research, and public outreach.

Please take a moment to read our policies.

Charge back policy

UMS provides media equipment and support as part of our mission to enhance classroom teaching and educational initiatives. In order to assist the various departments here at Suffolk University with budget considerations, we provide this charge back policy and price guidelines.

Faculty and Staff

All consumable items, such as videotape, audiotape, markers, flip chart paper, etc. are available as charge back items to faculty and staff of Suffolk University. Non-consumable items, e.g. TV/VCR units, tape recorders, camcorders, LCD projectors, etc. are lent without charge when used as part of face to face teaching or administrative function within the University.


In order to assist students with class projects and presentations, all consumable items are available on a "cash and carry" basis. Non-consumable items used for classroom presentation require a faculty reservation. A limited number of audiotape recorders and digital audo recorders are available for student use.

General Guidelines

UMS does not have equipment available for travel or off-campus events. However, we may be able to assist you in locating media for rent from private businesses. Media requests must be made at least two days in advance. All requests are subject to the availability of equipment. Users are responsible for the security of media equipment, as well as damages incurred while equipment is in their care. back to top^
