Technology Loan Program

The STC offers free technology loans for currently enrolled students to take to class, home, or off-campus.

Once you are finished getting everything together, the STC offers technology mentoring and has available equipment for editing and enhancing digital media. Of course, if you just want to use our lightning-fast computers to check your Facebook, that's fine too.



If you know ahead of time, students can request equipment for a certain day. If all available equipment is checked out, you can be added to the reservation list and you will receive an e-mail once the equipment is available.

You can add yourself to the reservation list by calling or e-mailing the STC. Waitlist times vary throughout the semester, but if there is a list, the average waiting time is 1-4 days.

Loan Period & Renewals

Laptops are loaned for 1 week, while all other equipment is rented for business days.

Equipment can be renewed up to 3 times.

Late & Broken Loans
