Laptop Policies

  • During the Spring 2023 semester, the loan period for laptops borrowed from Atkins Library will be 7 days with up to two renewals, for a total loan period of 21 days.
  • Laptops can be renewed in person, over the phone (704-687-0491), by email (, or through your My Library Account.
  • You will be able to check out another laptop after a 24-hour wait-period, based on computer availability. 
  • The library laptop lending program supplements rather than replaces the student-supplied personal computer.
  • Library laptops are intended for short term needs including when you leave your own device at home at home, your laptop it is being repaired, or you need software like Respondus for an immediate need. 
  • You will need to make sure you move all documents and data you may have saved on the library laptop to another device or the cloud before you return to  Atkins.
  • To keep your personal information safe, we erase all data and files during the re-imaging process.
