Each campus library has a set of Dell Latitudes and Chromebooks for our PNW students to borrow. Laptops/Chromebooks can be checked out at the Public Service Desk. They are on a first come first serve basis and we do not allow holds. Students can request to be placed on a waiting list once all laptops have been loaned.
