Long-term Laptop Request

This form is specifically for students requesting a laptop for extended use (28-day checkout). Due to a limited number of devices, priority is given to students in need of a laptop due to hardship or unexpected misfortune.

Short-term laptops (same day return, library use only) are available first come, first served at the Checkout Desk (no request form needed).



  • Laptop loans are for 28 days, with one renewal possible.
  • All laptops must be returned to the Alkek Checkout Desk.
