Field Equipment

The equipment store is located on the ground floor of the School. An extensive range of surveying field equipment is available for use in student practical exercises and research projects. The equipment is also available for hire by other university departments when not required by School staff or students.

Optical and electronic theodolites, optical and electronic levels, GPS units, hydrographic equipment, and a large supply of general surveying equipment form the inventory.

Commercial rates will vary for the types of equipment but will be around 1% of value per day.
