Beginning Fall 2010, students may borrow laptops for use while studying.  Laptops may be checked out in room 4003N and may not leave the room during use.  A student ID is required to check out a laptop, and all laptops are due back a half hour before the close of business the same day. Under no circumstances may laptops be kept out overnight. A laptop that is not returned overnight will be assumed lost and will result in a fine of $2500.  For more information on how to loan a laptop see the Laptop Loan Agreement.
