As part of UMBC’s response to COVID-19, all students are required to be technologically “self-sufficient.” Minimally, this includes a reliable laptop computer and Internet access. Historically, this also builds on UMBC’s “Assured Access to Computing” initiative that has been in place since 2001. As such, this site is designed to help students make the most of UMBC’s robust IT resources and support.
In partnership with the Albin O. Kuhn Library, the Division of Information Technology (DoIT) offers a limited supply of loaner laptops for emergency use. For more information about how to request a loaner laptop, visit the Laptop Loan Program.
