Students, faculty and staff at The University of Tampa can now rent
movies on campus for a dollar a night. The UT Student Government
Association has partnered with Blockbuster Express to place a DVD kiosk
in the Vaughn Center on campus.
According to Chris McCarthy,
Student Government vice president, UT is the third Florida university to
have Blockbuster Express on campus.
“We’re always looking at
new initiatives to enhance student life on campus,” McCarthy said. “And
this one’s a no-brainer. This provides convenient, affordable
entertainment for the entire UT community.”
McCarthy said 10
percent of the rental revenue from the kiosk will go toward scholarships
for the President's Leadership Fellows.
Blockbuster Express is
promoting the service with discount codes. The kiosks let you rent a DVD
for $1 a night with a credit card, but without having to sign up for a
membership. Each kiosk can hold nearly 1,000 movies with as many as 25
copies of a new release. Blu-Ray Discs cost $2 to rent.
