Laptop Lending Program

Need to borrow a laptop?

There will be no lending of laptops during the exam period. All borrowed devices should be returned by Monday December 5th. Lending will resume in mid–January.

The AUS runs a laptop lending program for Arts and Arts&Sci students out of the 24 hour Ferrier lab in the Ferrier Building. The program was launched in Winter 2015 and is still transitioning out of the pilot stage.

To be eligible for the program, you must not have opted-out of the Arts Computer Lab Fee on Minerva.
