Laptop Lending Program

General Information:

  • Note: due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are hoping to restart it in an adjusted fashion in Fall 2021. This page will be updated when we can confirm the program has been re-instated.

The AUS runs a laptop lending program for Arts and Arts&Sci students out of the 24 hour Ferrier lab in the Ferrier Building. To be eligible for the program, you must not have opted-out of the Arts Computer Lab Fee on Minerva. There are 20 Macbooks and 20 PC laptops available. 10 of each type include Adobe Creative Suite software. All computers come with chargers and display adapters.

How to Borrow

  1. Check that you have not opted-out of the Arts Computer Lab Fee on Minerva. This will be re-confirmed when you apply to borrow a laptop.
  2. Visit the Ferrier Computer Lab in the 3rd floor of the Ferrier Building between 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM Monday to Friday. Laptops are lent out on a first come, first serve basis.
