Laptop Loan Program

Library and Academic Services has laptops available for a loan period of four weeks.  

The Laptop Loan Program is designed to assist students who require the immediate use of a laptop while they obtain a device that meets the needs of their College program. Laptops cannot be borrowed for the duration of a College academic program.  

Borrowing a laptop is free of charge; however, students assume the financial responsibility of replacing the laptop in the case of loss or damage.   

Overdue laptops are subject to an accelerated billing process and the full replacement cost will be billed on laptops seven days overdue. Failure to return equipment or to pay replacement costs for lost equipment will result in suspension of Library privileges. Grades, certificates, and transcripts will be withheld by the Registrar until outstanding Library charges are resolved.
