Long-Term Laptop Checkout

Long-term laptops are available for currently enrolled students to check-out during the semester. This service is a perfect solution for students who don’t have access to a computer from home.

Due to the recent COVID-19 and the campus transition to virtual instruction, Student Genius Center is changing it's procedures for long-term device requests.  All requests must be submitted through the Dean of Students device request form.
