How to Checkout a Laptop

Laptop Rental Policies and Procedures

The Instructional Media Library (IML) has laptops available for student rentals. Students must read and sign the laptop rental agreement. Laptops that are checked out after 9:00am are due back at 3:00pm that same day. Laptops that are checked out after 3:00pm are due at 9:00am the next morning. When laptops are returned, they are inspected, cleaned, updated and scanned by the graduate assistant or the IML supervisor before they are checked out to another student. A full scan of the virus protection is performed on every student laptop regardless of checkouts each month. If a laptop is late, the student is contacted by phone and/or email. All contact is documented. After 24 hours, if the student cannot be contacted and/or the laptop is not returned th en the documentation is passed on to IML supervision.

Upon inspection, if physical damage is detected, the laptop record is updated and the laptop is pulled from service and given to the supervisor.


Before students can rent a laptop they must complete the required paperwork. This paperwork must be submitted at the start of each semester, even if you are a returning student. To help make the process faster, the forms are available online for you to fill out and bring with you. You can find them here. Please make sure you also bring your student I.D.
