Technology for Student Success

FAU Libraries and the Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management combine efforts to expand the “Library Laptop Loaner” Program

Library Laptop Loaner Program: 
The Library Laptop Loaner Program was established during the spring of 2020 to provide students in need with high quality laptops during remote learning caused by the COVID19 pandemic.  Priority is given to students with financial need, which is verified by the Office of Financial Aid.  Students who are not currently eligible for financial aid, but are still in need of a laptop are encouraged to apply as remaining laptops will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. All requests must be made by filling out this form.

Please note:  We also have a limited number of loaner Wi-Fi hotspots and webcams for students with demonstrated financial need. Verification will be conducted by the Office of Financial Aid and may require additional paperwork. 

Johnson Scholarship “First-Generation Student Success” Library Laptop Loaner Program:
Thanks to a grant received from the Johnson Scholarship Foundation, the Office of First-Generation Student Success and the Library Laptop Loaner Program received an additional 75 laptops for first-generation students with demonstrated financial need. All requests must be made by filling out this form.

Apply NOW!  Both library laptop loaner programs have a limited number of laptops.  If approved for either program, you will be contacted by a member of the library staff with instructions on when to pick-up and return your laptop.  Laptops may remain in your possession until the end of the semester.    

A special “Thank You” to FAU’s Student Government for contributing toward the Library Laptop Loaner Program by providing funding for 100 laptop cases.
