Laptop Checkout

CFANS allows students to check out one of 30 Dell laptops with expanded features available for up to one week at no charge from two libraries on the St. Paul Campus. 

This program is made possible through the use of CFANS Student Fees, and therefore is only accessible to students who have paid the current semester's technology fee to CFANS. Students interested in checking out or reserving a laptop should stop into or call one of the two libraries to make a reservation. If a laptop is not available for checkout immediately, you may reserve the next available laptop by asking the librarian at either of the libraries.

NOTE: Before you check out a laptop, read the complete laptop checkout policy.

The laptop check-out program is operated out of these CFANS libraries:
