Note: DoTS does not provide semester-long laptop checkouts. If you have a programatic need for a laptop, please work with your instructor or financial aid. DoTS and individual colleges provide regularly available computer labs with much of our academic software installed. Depending on the program you are enrolled, Financial Aid has an application process for computer loan assistance.


DoTS provides these commonly requested items for short term checkout to students, faculty, and staff. If you have long-term needs, you (or your department) may need to purchase instead. Availability is not guaranteed.
