Rental Information for Devices: Laptop Information
In order to make technology more accessible to everyone, Edmon Low Library offers laptop rentals from the circulation desk. These laptops, as well as accessories to go with them, can be used anywhere on campus and have access to a student's personal H: drive for easy use. Laptops even automatically connect to OSU wireless, helping patrons be where they need to be for projects, classes, or events.
Only patrons with a valid Oklahoma State University ID are allowed to checkout devices from the circulation desk. Should a patron forget their OSU ID, they MUST have another valid photo ID and know their CWID to rent a device.
Laptops can be renewed online, over the phone, or in person.
