Laptop Lending

Laptops are available for up to two-week loan periods to help Williams students, faculty, and staff continue working while their computing devices are being serviced or replaced.  OIT (Sawyer 2nd floor) staff is available to help assess and in some situations repair laptops. The Financial Aid Office may have funds available to help defray the cost of repair or replacement.  If specific software is needed for classes that your laptop is not able to operate, contact your professor.  Their OIT liaison may be able to help.
