Liability

An individual who checks out equipment on their own is solely liable for any loss and/or damage to the equipment, as per the Equipment Loan Agreement. Students who are working in a group are jointly liable for any damage and/or loss to that equipment.

Checking out equipment on behalf of other NU-Q students or non-NU-Q community members is not permitted and will result in a penalty and suspensions of privileges.

Total loss or theft of equipment

Any loss or theft of equipment should be immediately reported to the equipment cage. The student(s) responsible for the loss will have their equipment privileges suspended until the Director of Production and Digital Media or the NU-Q Review Committee makes a decision regarding the loss. 

Students must file a police report with campus security if the loss occurred on school grounds or with the appropriate police if the loss has occurred off-campus. A copy of the report must be provided to the equipment cage with a Total Loss or Theft of Equipment Form.

If required, the NU-Q Production Review Committee will meet to determine the extent of financial liability and duration of loss privileges.

Damage to equipment

During equipment check-in, any damage or operational problems with equipment should be reported immediately to Equipment Assistant or the Equipment Coordinator. Damage or operational problems with equipment must be documented using the Damaged Equipment Form and submitted with a photograph of the damage at check-in.

The student(s) responsible for the damage will have their equipment privileges suspended until a decision regarding the damage has been made by the Director of Production and Digital Media, the arbitration process or a payment for the damage has been made.

If required, the NU-Q Production Review Committee will meet to determine the extent of financial liability and duration of lost privileges.
