Laptop Computer Lending

We recognize the importance of the work our community performs. Work interruption due to computer hardware or software failure can be damaging to time-sensitive projects and every day productivity. The SCS Help Desk maintains an inventory of loaner laptops which is available to the SCS community for down-time due to repairs on SCS supported computers, emergency situations or reservations (while availability permits).

Our inventory features SCS supported vendor/models: Dell, Apple and Lenovo. 

Requesting a Laptop Loan

Submit a laptop loan request. Laptops must be checked out at the SCS Help Desk by the borrower due to established loan policies

If you are needing a loaner laptop but are planning to purchase a computer, visit our recommended computers page for more information on SCS Computing Facilities supported recommendations along with features, technical specifications, warranty information and supported operating system information
