The Health Service has a program for NU students on the Evanston Campus to borrow a wheelchair for a period of no more than 48 hours based on the specific need. There is no cost to the student for this service. In order to borrow the equipment, the student must:
Call the Administrative Assistant in Health Service Administration at 847.491.2123 to determine if a wheelchair is available.
If the wheelchair is available, the student will make an appointment with the Administrative Assistant to fill out the Equipment on loan form (PDF).
Bring to the appointment a valid Northwestern Wildcard (student ID).
The Administrative Assistant will make a copy of the Student ID and have the student fill out the Equipment on Loan form (PDF).
The Equipment on Loan Form (PDF) must be signed by the student.
The student must return the wheelchair within 48 hours in good condition.
Any violation of the above procedure could result in the cost of the wheelchair being charged to the student.
