Device Loaner Program

The Device Loaner Program is available to currently enrolled Summer 2022 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 Summer 2022 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. Summer 2022 devices must be returned by August 23, 2022

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 (Estimated availability, mid-June 2022)
  • Headset
