Device Loaner Program

Important Notice: 

Students who currently have a Fall 2020 loaner device in their possession, and are currently enrolled for Spring 2021, can request a loan extension for their current device/s through the end of the Spring 2021 term, Wednesday, May 26, 2021. If you fall into this category, an email was sent to you. Please following the instructions provided in the email to request a loan extension.

Students who are not enrolled for the Spring 2021 term or not planning on renewing should return their equipment as soon as possible to the CSUN Campus Store. 


The Device Loaner Program is available for currently enrolled Spring 2021 CSUN students. The program provides technology to students who are without a device such as a computer or internet hotspot so that they may continue their education uninterrupted. These devices will be checked out at no cost to current students (student ID or Driver's License required) for the Spring 2021 term. The loaning of devices further supports our on-going physical distancing efforts, based upon evolving evidence and guidance, by decreasing the possibility of COVID-19 transmission in campus-based computer labs. 

What Devices Can I Borrow?

Devices that can be checked out:

  • Windows 10 Laptop
      • Lenovo ThinkBook 15”
      • Intel Core i5 Processor
      • 8 GB RAM
      • 250 GB Hard Drive
  • Webcam
  • Hotspot
  • Headset

Where Can I Pick Up the Device?
