Borrowing Laptops

Library Laptops

You can check out HP laptops and Macbooks at the Loan & Reserve Desk at Morgan Library.

There are two different options for laptop check out:

  • 6-hour check out
  • One week check out

Since laptops are in high demand, they’re available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Laptop checkouts are not available for renewal.

Other Laptops on Campus

Some colleges and schools have their own laptop loan program for students majoring in their areas who don’t have access to a laptop. These are a few of them, but we recommend contacting your major department to see if they have a laptop loan program.

All Students:

All students, regardless of major, can borrow a laptop for 6 hours through the Undeclared Technology Resource Center at the Behavioral Sciences Building by emailing UTRC_checkout@mail.colostate.edu.

Undeclared Students:

Undeclared students can borrow a Macbook laptop for the semester, if they have no other computer options available to them. Email the Undeclared Technology Resource Center at UTRC_checkout@mail.colostate.edu to request a form.

College of Business:

Business students can get information about short-term laptop loans by contacting help@business.colostate.edu.

College of Engineering students can temporarily borrow a laptop through Engineering Technology Services.
