Student Equipment

Official Harvard College student groups (those listed with Harvard College's Student Life) can borrow the equipment packages listed below. All of these packages are free of charge if they are returned on time.

Free Equipment

Equipment is signed out from our main office in the Science Center, Room B-02. Students setup and operate the equipment on their own and return the equipment when done.

Computer/Video Projector

MTS loans out a computer/video projector for official student groups. This includes a screen, and small powered speaker.

Sound System

Two speakers with a powered mixer/amplifier, one wired microphone, and numerous inputs for other devices. This is the only system MTS has that is recommended for parties.

HD Video Recorder/Tripod

Consumer quality video camera that contains a built in microphone and one tripod.

Equipment with Rental Fees

Rentals are billed at an hourly rate if the rental period is five hours or less and a day rate it over five hours. Overnight and weekend rentals are billed at one times the day rate. These rates include a 50% student discount. Rental fees are due when equipment is signed out by cash or check (made out to Harvard University). MTS does not rent wireless microphones.

Late Fees

Equipment rented for a fee that is returned late will be billed to students at the non-discounted day rate for each piece of equipment. Students late returning the free equipment may incur a late charge if it interferes with another student group booking.

Failure to Make Payment

Students not paying their bills on time may lose their 50% discount on equipment. Please note that no degrees can be conferred until all indebtedness to the University is paid in full.
