Laptop Loaner Program

Nearly every Penn student brings their own laptop to the University. But what happens when your computer needs help beyond what your ITA can give?

Available now, residents of DuBois, Gregory, Hill, New College House have access to College House Computing's Laptop Loan Program. This program, is only available to residents living in those houses, this program allows students to borrow a laptop for up to 72 hours. These laptops are in limited quantities and are available for reservation(link is external)

These laptops will come with the same software found on lab computers -- JMP, Maple, Microsoft Office, Matlab, SPSS, R, and the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.) Much like the computers in the computer labs, the files on each laptop will be erased when the laptop is powered off, so borrowers will need to ensure that they save their files on another storage device or in the cloud prior to shutting the laptop down.

Reservations can be made here(link is external).  Please note that quantities and availability are limited. (This program is exclusive to students living in DuBois, Gregory, Hill, New College House)

Laptops must be checked in and out by an ITA on duty during ITA shift hours. Please visit your individual house website for those hours.
