Check Out Technology Equipment

Access the technology you need to complete assignments and projects at Hamline. Equipment is available for all students, staff, and faculty through the Central Service Desk short-term checkout program.

Checkout process

The Central Service Desk (CSD) in Bush Memorial Library offers items for short-term loans ONLY.

Long-term requests (students only)

Students have the option to request a Chromebook and/or a wifi jetpack for a semester, and pick it up at PiperXpress.  To apply for these items, they need to fill out this form.  At this time, we are unable to offer long-term loans to faculty and staff. If you are faculty or staff and have a need for a long-term item, please speak with your supervisor about a TechSelect order.

Short-term requests (everyone)

Fill out the equipment request form before visiting the Bush Library Central Service Desk (CSD) on the first floor of Bush Library. We will contact you when your item(s) are ready for pick-up. Please bring your ID and allow five to 10 minutes for the checkout process.

All equipment is available on a first-come, first-served basis unless otherwise noted. Please read the Campus Equipment Loan Policy for all rules and regulations regarding equipment loans before checking out tech equipment.
