  • 6 hour loan period
  • Overdue fines are $10/hour
  • If no one is waiting for a laptop, you can renew in person at either the Circulation Desk or the Service Desk or over the phone.
  • Laptops may be taken out of the library and checked out overnight when the library is closed. All laptops can connect to non-OSU wifi networks.

Important note about logging in and leaving campus:

  • Dell Latitude & Apple MacBook Pro: Log in to the laptop using your ONID account before leaving campus. You can turn off the laptop and leave campus with it as long as you have first logged in while connected to the OSU wireless network.
  • Dell Chromebook: Log in to the laptop using your full @onid.oregonstate.edu email. Dell Chromebooks can leave campus and do not have to be on the OSU wireless network to connect to your Google Apps for OSU account. Note: When you sign out of a Chromebook it will automatically wipe all local data including settings.
  • Checkout of laptops implies agreement with the following statement:

    "I agree to pay all costs associated with damage to this laptop computer or its associated peripheral equipment or its replacement costs should it be lost or stolen. I understand that the replacement cost for this laptop computer will be between $700 and $1,500 (depending on the laptop type) plus the accrued overdue fine(s) and a $15 processing charge."


OSU students, faculty or staff, can use the OSU_Access wireless network. View this OSU Helpdesk page about OSU_Access for instructions.
