PGSS Therapy Lamp Lending Program
Students can sign up to reserve a therapy lamp from the PGSS, loan periods are for two weeks. Reserved lamps must be picked up within 48 hours. Lamps must be then returned to the PGSS office by the 2 week deadline. While the lamps are free to rent for PGSS members, there is $40 deposit that will be held until the return of the therapy lamp to room 401 of the Thomson House. The service is free provided the lamps are returned ontime and with normal use (no damage). The deposit can be paid online (below) or in cash. Late returns will result in a $5/day late fee. Any damage to the lamps (other than from normal use) will also result in a reduction of the deposit to pay for repairs.
The PGSS lamps are Northern Light Technologies "Travelite" this lightweight model is perfect for bringing to your lab, office or apartment.
