The CIT Help Desk retains a small cache of Macintosh and Windows laptops available for short-term loan. Contact the Help Desk at cit@oberlin.edu or 775-8197 to schedule use of a loaner laptop. 

You can pick up the loaner from the Help Desk in Mudd Center, room 112B.

Faculty and Staff

For Travel

Faculty and staff members can borrow a laptop for travel purposes for up to two weeks through the CIT Help Desk. Make requests ahead of time by sending an e-mail to cit@oberlin.edu.

Loan During Repairs 

If your computer is in our shop for a warranty-covered repair, you may be eligible for a loaner from the Tech Store after a 24 hour waiting period. Loaners are only available for Oberlin student-owned computers covered by the manufacturer's warranty or our Safeware policy, and for repairs performed by CIT. They are not available for repairs due to user damage or software problems. Loaners are subject to availability and not guaranteed to be the same model as the computer in for repair. Loaners must be returned within three days of notification that your computer is ready for pick-up; you may be charged for delayed returns or damage to equipment.


Students 

General Loan

CIT does not make laptops generally available, but students may check out laptops from the Main Library Circulation Desk in Mudd Center.
