Loaner Computer - Lancaster

What is it?

The SJU Technology Service Center (TSC) on SJU's Hawk Hill campus maintains a pool of loaner computers for faculty, staff, and students who are eligible according to the guidelines described below. The TSC will loan either a Lenovo or Apple laptop to HH or UC constituents, depending on availability. Loaner laptops are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and offered to those individuals whose computer will be sent out for a repair that will take longer than 24 hours. The TSC does not offer loaner laptops for quick fixes such as software installation.

For students in Lancaster, IT also has a pool of loaner computers, which can be loaned for testing purposes depending on availability. Students should always do a practice test and ensure Respondus and their computer are functioning in advance of their exams. In the event that a loaner is needed for an exam, please submit a request to pick up a loaner the day prior to your exam. IT cannot guarantee availability otherwise.

All SJU students are required to have a laptop that meets the recommend specifications. Chromebooks, iPads, and other Tablets will not be supported.


Faculty, staff, and students are welcome to bring their laptops to the TSC to be diagnosed. A Loaner Laptop, if available, will be offered based on the eligibility criteria below.
