Laptop Loans

To borrow a laptop you must read and sign the Laptop Kit Loan Agreement form, and bring your student or staff ID card.

Each laptop kit includes the laptop itself, a case, a power adapter, and a mouse. They are issued for 3 hours. You are responsible for the full cost of any lost or damaged parts. If the laptop itself is stolen this could be as high as $1600. Do not leave the laptop unattended!

You can get information on which laptops are currently available through the Library Catalogue.

Frequently Asked Questions
