Student group discounts

LTS offers a substantial, sliding-scale discount on event-related technology and equipment rental to Brandeis student groups.

To be eligible for the discount, student groups must:

  • Be recognized by the student government.
  • Obtain authorized signature on the rental form from either the Dept. of Student Activities or Conference and Events Services.
  • Use equipment for an official group function.
  • Use equipment on-campus only.
  • Pick up and return equipment during regular MTS office hours.
  • Transport, set-up and strike equipment.
  • Receive training on equipment (if required by MTS).
  • Student groups meeting the above criteria may rent equipment from MTS at the following discounted rates:
Regular Rate
Student Group Discount Rate
Under $25 No Charge (N/C)
$25 - $99 $25
$100 - $249 $50
$250 - $499 $75
$500 or above $100 + 20% of university affiliated charges

Guidelines:

  • Inventory is available on a limited basis. Depending on general campus activity and demand, we reserve the right to limit the number of simultaneous and repeat rentals in order to provide equitable support for the entire University.
  • Academic and event use has priority over student groups: and in some cases, confirmation of availability may be withheld until one week before the event, regardless of how far in advance the request is made.
  • A minimum one week notice is required to reserve equipment.
  • Equipment training is available.
  • Student group is responsible for damaged or stolen equipment.
