Equipment Loaner Pool
The MPC has a plethora of equipment for you to borrow for free, which you can use for multimedia projects, both academic and personal. To borrow equipment, just bring your valid WC ID card to the MPC.
NOTE: Although there is no charge for students to borrow equipment, there are fines for loans which are not returned on time. When you borrow equipment, you will need to sign a legal agreement to take responsibility for the gear. This form also outlines the duration of the loan. Please be aware of your loan details.
Our Loaner Pool includes:
- Nikon & Canon DSLR cameras
- Canon and Panasonic point-and-shoot cameras
- Canon HD camcorders
- Audio recorders
Video cameras, tripods, and audio recorders may be borrowed up to 1 week at a time. Still cameras may be borrowed up to 2 days at a time.
If you need to extend a loan, bring the equipment in and check it back in, then re-check it back out.
Users who wish to borrow equipment must agree to the terms and conditions outlined in the Loaner Equipment Agreement.

Setting a strong password from the beginning is a good start to being a smart user of the Washington College network. However, it’s not enough to be truly secure. Security experts recommend changing your password (or passphrase) at least once every three months (90 days) and OIT requires this practice.
It is important to remember that your new password cannot be the same password used during the last three changes.
For even greater security, many people change their password once a month. Whether once a month or once every three months, it is important to find a schedule that works for you and stick with it.
