How Do I check out a laptop?

You can borrow laptops at Alexander, Art, Carr, Douglass, LSM, and Smith. Several libraries also loan tablets, scientific calculators, cameras, headphones, and more. Check with the circulation desk at your local library to see what's on offer.

Please note that:

  • Laptops are available for in library use by current Rutgers students, staff, and faculty.
  • The loan period is 4 hours from the time of check out, or until 15 minutes before closing time. Overdue fines are $10 per hour overdue.
  • You can save files to a flash drive, email them, or upload them to Google Drive or a similar site. Documents saved to a laptop will be lost when the laptop is shut down or restarted. The Libraries are not responsible for the loss of any data while using library-owned equipment.
  • The full replacement and processing cost of $700 for a netbook and $1,200 for a laptop is due should the computer or peripheral devices be stolen, lost, not returned, or damaged beyond repair.
