Loaner Laptop

Let us loan you a laptop

If you are a current Indiana University Bloomington student in need of a laptop due to unforeseen circumstances, please contact the Student Care and Resource Center to schedule an appointment.

During the first meeting, we will work with you to determine if there are any other resources that may be helpful to you. Students engaged with the Laptop Loaner Program will have one additional check-in appointment with a Care Coordinator during the lending period.

Borrowing guidelines

The Student Care and Resource Center provides a limited number of laptops for currently enrolled students to borrow for up to a semester.

Here’s what students need to know about borrowing a laptop:

  • Please bring your Indiana University Crimson Card with you to check out a laptop.
  • Students must be enrolled in the current semester.
  • Laptops can be borrowed for up to one semester.
  • Additional lending periods will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
  • Students who do not return a laptop on time may be prohibited from checking out a laptop in the future.
  • Borrowers are responsible for the equipment during the loan period and may be liable for any damages. If a laptop is not returned, it will be considered lost and the borrower will be liable for a replacement fee ($900 for the laptop, $50 for the charger). A registration hold will also be placed on the borrower's Bursar account until the laptop is returned or the fee is paid.
