I work at a Uni, that's just odd!!!
Lending the equipment - slightly odd, charging $1k late fee - very odd.
Courier it back or ring your lecturer/tutor/supervisor/school admin assistant to work out an alternate way to get it back.
If they need it back for their own purposes they will do it. If it's for another student, get that student to pick it up from you and not the Uni.
NEVER leave a sick child at home that young.

Your child has just gotten out of hospital and is too sick to go in the car and you actually need to ask if he should be left home alone?
Ring the uni and explain the situation. They will help you. If the equipment you have is in high demand and someone else needs it, they will most likely be willing to come and get it. If not, surely you can get someone to come and look after your child for a little while, or get someone else to drop off the equipment.

I would hire a courier or stick it in a taxi.

What is the piece of equipment?

what age to leave child home alone?
Another in the no camp. If he's that sick, he shouldn't be left alone. Go the courier option. It shouldn't cost much and would be easier all round.

I also wouldn't leave an 8yr old home alone, sick or not.
OP what did you decide to do?

I find it odd that in a post a few days ago you said you were a helicopter parent and didn't let your child out of your sight at the park and ring the daycare several times a day. But you are willing to leave your sick child who is to sick to even travel home alone. Hmm priorities.

No. Just no. I would rather cop the fee, than to leave an extremely sick child.
What if he needed something to drink? What if he vomited everywhere? What if fainted on the way to the toilet? I wouldn't even leave an older child in that situation.
Hire a courier! It's cheaper and your son will be safer.

H#ll no! If he is sick enough to be in hospital he is definitely not well enough to left home alone. I cant believe this is a serious question.
