Borrowing Technology

Borrowing Laptops

TWU students, staff and faculty at our Denton campus may check out Windows Laptops from the laptop kiosk located near our first-floor printers. A limited number of Windows laptops, as well as Chromebooks, are also available for short-term and long-term checkout from the main library Information Desks on the Dallas, Denton, and Houston campuses.

For short-term, library-owned laptop checkouts users may borrow the item for up to eight hours. In Dallas and Houston Laptops cannot be renewed. In Denton, laptops can be renewed one time for an additional eight hours or until the library closes (whichever comes first).

For long-term, library-owned laptop checkouts users may borrow the item for up to an entire semester and each borrowing patron will receive a mouse, charger, and laptop bag with their checkout. Renewals for these items may be filled at the discretion of library IT and administration. For more information contact

Do not leave any borrowed laptops unattended.
