Laptop Loan Program

  The CUNY SPS Office of Student Services is pleased to offer currently enrolled students the opportunity to borrow a laptop for use in an emergency situation for up to one month. The laptops are available for pickup by appointment here on campus at 119 West 31st Street. A valid student ID and EMPLID number are required for enrollment verification.


The Dell Latitude E5470 laptops are loaded with the CUNY SPS standard suite of programs—MS Office, Adobe Acrobat, SPSS, and more—students may need to complete for their coursework. They are equipped with WiFi for access to wireless networks.

Students interested in borrowing a laptop must complete the Laptop Loan Liability Agreement Form and email it to Student Services at [email protected], along with a brief description of the emergency.

It is important that students understand that the emergency laptop loan program can only function if everyone is respectful of the one month timeframe. This period of time should allow for the repair of broken computers and/or an exploration of options for purchasing a new computer. Failure to return the laptop after the one month loan period may result in other students being unable to do their coursework and a registration hold.

Note: CUNY SPS is not responsible for data recovery on the laptop. Please make sure to back up your data online or on an external drive. Once the laptop is returned, all data on the hard drive will be lost. The CUNY SPS Help Desk will only provide support with username and password issues.


The Help Desk will not support: (1) any personal wired or wireless devices that need to be configured for use with the laptop; (2) any CUNY SPS software installed on the machine; (3) any course required software installed on the machine; or (4) any data residing on the machine. If a machine is experiencing issues Student Services may provide a replacement machine. Contact the CUNY SPS Help Desk for assistance at 646-664-8592 or [email protected].
