Low-Cost Internet and Devices

Helping you stay connected.

Student studying on laptop

Loaner Laptops

Each of the Alamo Colleges has a limited number of loaner laptops that students may borrow one semester at a time. These devices must be returned by the end of the semester. If we do not receive your laptop, a transcript hold that restricts your ability to get an official transcript will be put on your account until you return it, and you will be ineligible to check out a laptop at any college. To request a laptop, students should contact their home college's Information Technology department.
