Rental Hours and Locations

All rented equipment needs to be checked out and returned to the main MTS office in the Science Center, Room B-02, at the following times: Monday - Thursday 8:00 AM - 9:00 PM, Friday 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM.


Class Use

Equipment used for a FAS class is free of charge. Most equipment loaned for in-class use can only be signed out for a few hours.


Event Use

Equipment can be rented by Harvard departments, faculty, staff, and students for on campus events. There is a charge to rent the equipment if the event is not part of a FAS class. Offical student groups receive a 50% discount. Rental fees are due when equipment is signed out by cash or check (made out to Harvard University). We cannot give a discount to any student group using a Harvard Department's billing code.


Student groups also have access to a pool of free equipment packages.
