Device Loaner Program

The Device Loaner Program is available to currently enrolled Spring 2023 CSUN students. If you are currently participating in the device loaner program and are enrolled in Spring 2023, your device will be automatically renewed. Please note if you are waitlisted for all your classes, you are not yet eligible for the program. 

The program provides technology to students who are without a device such as a computer or web cam 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 is required) for the Spring 2023 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. Spring 2023 devices must be returned by Monday, May 22, 2023
