Laptop LendingCLICC offers laptop lending to any UCLA student, faculty and staff with a valid BruinCard. We have lending locations in seven libraries: Arts, Biomed, SEL/Geology, Music, Powell, SEL/Boelter, and Research Library. Laptops are checked out for six hours at a time, and users may renew their laptop once for an additional six hours. In addition to laptops, CLICC also lends out headphones, computer mice, phone chargers, and HDMI cables, as well as projectors (only at Research Library and Powell lending locations).
Who can check out a laptop?
- Current undergraduate and graduate students, staff, and faculty can check out laptops as long as they have a BruinCard. No other form of ID will be accepted.
- Laptop borrowing privileges may be revoked or suspended based on violations of policies at the discretion of Library Administration.
How do I check out a laptop?
- Approach the laptop lending counter at any of our laptop lending stations (see above) and present a valid BruinCard. CLICC consultants or staff members will scan the laptop, charger, and any other small items you would like to check out, and will issue you a laptop bag.
How long can I have the laptop?
- The laptop is due in exactly 6 hours, or at the time of closing if there are less than 6 hours remaining in that day. Laptops can be renewed only once.
- You can log onto your My Account on the Library Catalog to verify your laptop due time. In My Account you can also check if your laptop has been discharged from your account after you return it.
Can I renew my laptop? How do I do that?
- Yes, laptops can be renewed once for another 6 hours period starting from time of the renewal, or until closing time.
- The laptop must be renewed before the due date time. You cannot renew a laptop if it is already late. You must bring the laptop, along with the bag and all its accessories, to the lending station and check-in the laptop. Only then can you check-out the laptop and start a new six hour block.
- You can renew your laptop online via the icon provided on the desktop of the laptop, over the phone, or in person at the lending location.
How do I return my laptop?
- Return your laptop on-time with the bag and all its accessories to the lending station from which you obtained the laptop.
- An inventory will be made of all these items, and the screen will be checked for cracks or other damage. If something is missing or damages were incurred, it will be noted in our system and you may be fined.
But what if my laptop's lending station is closed?
- All laptops may be returned at 145 Powell Library if other lending stations are closed.
- If you noticed a problem with your laptop, please let the CLICC consultant or staff know upon return so we can address the problem.
