Laptop & Equipment Checkout
To continue supporting remote and on-campus teaching, learning, and working, the Laptop Checkout & Equipment Program will offer both short-term and long-term checkout of laptops and equipment to current Sac State Faculty, Staff, and Students on a first-come, first-served basis.
We offer limited quantities of the following:
Laptops/devices are available for short-term (4-hour maximum) on-campus use only for currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students who are in good standing (no fines or suspensions). You'll need to present a valid Sac State One Card.
Laptops can be checked out at the following locations:
- University Library User Desk on the first floor
- University Union Terminal Lounge
If you require a longer duration or off-campus use, view the Long-Term Checkout guidelines below.
IRT is providing laptops for temporary long-term on and off-campus use.
Continuing Faculty, Staff, and Students who need devices/equipment for teaching/learning/working for the Fall 2021 semester may continue to do so through December 2021. The checkout window is automatically extended without needing to re-apply.
Devices and available accessories must be requested formally and provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
One (1) laptop/device can be checked out through the end of a semester. However, whenever you're finished using the device, please follow the return instructions to return it as soon as possible to help your fellow Hornets.
Laptops/devices require authentication with your SacLink username and password and are to be used for coursework, teaching, or business purposes.
