Loaner Laptops

About Loaner Laptops

We currently have several laptops available for short term loans primarily to CLAS faculty and staff. These laptops are intended for situations that require you have a computer but no other computer is available to you. Please speak with your department to first see if a loaner computer is available from them before contacting us. Our loaner laptops are intended for situations such as:

  • Conferences
  • Waiting on a replacement computer on order for a failed computer.
  • Waiting on repair of a malfunctioning computer.
  • Telecommuting for a temporary period of time, such as when recovering from surgery.

These laptops are intended for short term loans. In situations where you need a laptop for a long period of time please speak with your department about the purchase of a new computer. And by short term we mean loans that range from a day to a few weeks.

In some situations we may be able to provide more than one at a time for a particular purpose, although this depends greatly on availability. In cases like this it may be possible to provide up to 5 PC laptops for a very short term loan.

Request a Loaner

Please contact for availability for PC or Apple laptops. Laptops are available on a first-come-first-serve basis and are intended for short term loans, although with advance notice we should be able to reserve a laptop for you. In most situations you will need to pick up the laptop from our office suite in Austin 345.
