Q. Does the library have laptops available for students to use?
Yes, the University Libraries loans laptops for students to use in two ways:
SHORT TERM: Stop by the Media Resources and Reserves Desk on the Upper Mall (2nd floor) of the Hayward campus library and present your CSUEB ID. All laptops are loaded with the Microsoft Office suite of programs and can access the campus wireless network. Current loan periods for laptops are 4 hours. However, please return all laptops to the MRR desk at least one full hour before closing.
LONG TERM: The Loaner Laptop Program loans laptops for the entire quarter. Eligibility determinations are done by the Financial Aid Office, and are based on the following criteria:
- is an undergraduate financial aid student who is carrying a minimum of 12 units
- the student has maxed out his or her traditional avenues of financial aid
- the student has an expected family contribution of $0.00
An email is sent to eligible students around the first week of classes.
Laptops are checked out on a first-come first-served basis. If you have received an eligibility email, call (510) 885-4152 to set up an appointment.
On the day of appointment come to the Learning Commons (located in the Lower Mall of the Library) along with a copy of the email that you have received and a CSUEB ID.
