Equipment List and Photos

  • CEOAS students, staff, and faculty are eligible to check out field equipment. Undergraduate students must obtain permission from the faculty member responsible for the work that is being done in the field outside of a scheduled class activity or field camp and upload it to the reservation request form (below).
  • Participants in scheduled field classes and field trips will have equipment priority over individual requests.
  • Reservations should be made at least seven (7) days in advance.*
  • Equipment should be picked up and returned during the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday from the Student Services Office, WLKN 104.  If you need to return items after-hours or on the weekend please work with Stacey Schulte, 541-737-1221 to develop a plan.
  • Cancelations must be made two (2) working days prior to the day of pick-up. Cancelations can be made in person in WLKN 104 or by phone, by calling Stacey Schulte, 541-737-1221 during regular business hours.
  • Teaching assistants (TA) are generally responsible for picking up and returning items needed for a class field activity even if individual students make the reservation themselves.  A list of items reserved for a given class can be provided to the TA upon request.
  • Equipment is expected to be returned in the same condition as it was checked out.  If items are returned in poor condition you may be asked to clean or tidy them as needed.
  • Items may be checked our free of charge; however dirty, damaged, lost equipment, repair, cleaning, or replacement cost will be assessed and charged to the renter through indices or charges to OSU Student Accounts.
    • CEOAS does not offer insurance on equipment.
    • Wear and tear from normal usage is expected; however, the loss of or negligent damage to any item will be reviewed on an individual basis by the associate dean and may incur a charge equivalent to the cost of replacing the item.


* Please note that some items like field communication equipment are very popular and in short supply during our busy field season and we recommend submitting your request for these items at least four (4) weeks in advance of your need.  If an item(s) is not available, you will be contacted as soon as possible so you may make alternative plans to obtain the equipment.
