Who Can Borrow?
The technology checkout program is available to currently registered undergraduate and graduate students. In order to check out a laptop or iPad during the Summer or Winter sessions, you must be registered to take classes during those sessions. This means that if you are enrolled for Fall semester classes and want to check out a laptop or iPad in mid-July, you cannot do so.
How Can I Borrow?
Students must fill out a Master Rental Agreement (MRA) once per fiscal year. The MRA covers things like fees for lost and broken laptops and iPads. Once a student has filled out the MRA, he or she must wait for approximately 24 hours before checking out a laptop or iPad. This wait period is in place due to the time it takes to verify that the student is currently enrolled and to enter their information into the program's checkout system.
Laptop loans are for 1 week (7 days). There is a 1 day lapse between loan periods to ensure that all students have access to laptops and iPads. This means that if you have just returned a laptop or iPad, you will not be able to check out another one until 24 hours have passed.
For more information, please stop by the Technology Checkout Program Office, LIB SOUTH 3941, between 9:00AM and 9:00PM Monday through Thursday or between 9:00AM and 5:00PM on Friday, or call (310) 243-2173.
How Much Does it Cost?
There is no charge to students to use the Technology Checkout program. However, there are fees if laptops and iPads are returned late, broken, or lost.
