The policies on this webpage have been streamlined and reformatted, and are now available on the University Policies webpage. We ask that you use this new resource, as future changes, additions to or eliminations of these policies will only be made to the University Policies webpage, and policy manuals you may have used in the past will no longer be updated. 

BPM-411 Use of Employee Personal Property

Revised April 5, 1993

General Policy

As a general policy, employees should not use personal property on University premises to perform their jobs. Exceptions to this policy may be approved by the administrative head if it is believed to be in the best interest of the University. In such cases, an agreement should be executed between the employee and the University. This policy does not affect use of personal vehicles (see Business Policy 504, Personal Vehicles).

Equipment Guidelines

If employees use personal property such as calculators, computers, or tools, the University will not insure or assume liability for the loss or damage of said property.

There may be circumstances where the use of personal property, such as musical instruments or special equipment, may be appropriate in the conduct of University responsibilities. In such cases, an agreement should be executed between the employee and the administrative head. This agreement shall identify the equipment to be used and the length of service required.

Reciprocal Use of University Equipment

The Collected Rules and Regulations Section 110.010H addresses the use of University property in reciprocal agreements with other institutions. This regulation is not applicable to individual employees.
