Laptop Loaners for Students

During the semester, students can checkout a laptop for one week up to an entire semester and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  

Checkout Terms

Loaner laptops are for temporary usage, while your computer is getting fixed or you are saving up to buy a laptop. St. Olaf has many public computers you can use; locations can be found here. Students can borrow a laptop computer for up to one year (checkout period is limited to one semester at a time); after that, plans should be made to purchase your own laptop or use a public computer. 


To request a laptop, students must meet one of the following requirements:

  • Enrolled in a course (Fall, Interim, Spring, Summer) on campus
  • Involved in a summer research project through Steen or CURI
  • Involved in a credit-bearing internship where equipment is needed that cannot be provided by the internship location

Requests usually take 3 business days; however, at the beginning of each semester, loaner requests can take longer.  

iPad Requests

We do not check out iPads for personal use. IT provides iPads for checkout to classes or at a faculty's request. We can provide iPads for use in study abroad courses or for extended periods on campus.
