Borrow Equipment


Due to COVID-19, equipment circulation from the Knapp Center for the 2021 Academic year will prioritize Wellesley College community members who require the use of equipment for academic purposes. Knapp equipment pickup and returns will be done at the Help Desk by appointment only. Please note that reservations will require prior authorization. Equipment will need up to one week (7 days) before it is ready for pick up, so please plan accordingly.

Clapp Lockers are unavailable for checkout at this time.

To request a reservation, or if you have any questions, please email us at
