Using Library laptops requires a UW NetID to logon to them while on campus! The current laptops are Dell 15 inch touch screens with webcams, and backlit keyboards, that include a 10-key. All of the laptops can access the campus wireless network, and have an Ethernet port for wired Internet access. The software available on the circulated laptops is a subset of the licensed software installed on the computers in the Information Commons. See the Software tab for more information.
Students must present their current Husky card for checkouts, and may be asked to show additional photo ID. (No manual checkouts are allowed.) To ensure availability for as many students as possible, students may not checkout another laptop the same day they return one, and they cannot be reserved or renewed. Laptops may have limited availability during the interims between quarters.
Laptops must be returned by the due date to avoid sanctions or fines. Fines accrue for laptops at a daily rate, including days the library is closed if it is already past the due date. Failure to return a laptop, will result in being billed the replacement cost of the laptop, a non-refundable fine, and a lost item processing fee. (Visit http://www.lib.washington.edu/services/borrow/fines for more information.) Please do not return laptops using the Library's book returns.

All files on the laptop may be deleted upon check-in, however, it will not be checked in without all of the accessories it was checked out with. (power adaptor, disk drives, cases, cables, etc.) FAILURE TO RESPOND TO EMAILS ABOUT THE LAPTOP, OR RETURN A LAPTOP BY THE DUE DATE, MAY RESULT IN THE LOSS OF LAPTOP PRIVILEGES AND OTHER SANCTIONS.
