Launched in 2016, the resource bank allows student societies and clubs to borrow items from the UTSU for free or for the cost of the materials consumed. These items range from tables to charging stations, and various other audio items. Any UTSU recognized club, student society, levy group, and/or course union may borrow these items by making an advanced booking and deposit. The items may be picked up and returned during the UTSU’s hours of operation (9:45am- 6:30pm Monday to Friday (no weekends), and must be returned in clean and working condition, on time.
WHY USE THE RESOURCE BANK?
The resource bank is an efficient service that allows the UTSU to share items with student groups in a way that will be cost and space efficient for the groups.
A central service such as the resource bank allows for an item(s) to be shared and reused by various groups rather than being purchased by multiple, which effectively reduces waste.
Purchasing expensive items that will be used minimally can be financially-straining for student groups. The resource bank allows groups to enjoy these items as often as they’d like for a reduced cost, which will save them money.
HOW TO RENT/ PAY
Booking form must be submitted to the UTSU two weeks prior to the date of booking.
Deposits are to be paid by credit card or cheque at our office prior to pickup to booking. Consumables are to be paid via debit or cash at the time of pickup in our office.
