Laptop Loan

The STAC Laptop Loan Program is an opportunity for University students to receive a laptop computer during the academic year. This program provides more immediate access to campus technologies for those most likely to benefit from them.

The laptops are University property, are issued at no cost to selected students, and are loaned out for one academic year. Students can use the laptops for whatever they wish, including word processing, online research, e-mail correspondence, etc., provided the student stays enrolled at the University. For more information concerning the Laptop Loan Program policies and guidelines, please review Laptop Loan Policies.

Laptop Loan Requirements for Application

Any currently enrolled undergraduate or graduate student who is receiving financial aid from the University is eligible for the program. Students may apply and enroll in the Laptop Loan Program for multiple years. Laptops are loaned out for one academic year, from September to April.

The application deadline for the upcoming school year is June 15th.

Please Note

Unfortunately, STAC does not provide "rental" laptops, nor does it have the resources to make laptops available for check-out by the entire student population of BGSU. Laptops are available for three (3) hour increments, to be used in the Jerome Library at the Circulation Desk. Please see the Policy for Circulating Wireless Laptops in the BGSU Libraries page for additional information.
