Attention All Laptop Borrowers!

Library Laptops may be available, and UWB students may use this form to request a Library Laptop. (UW NetID required)  For UWB students, a different laptop option has been added by UWB IT, and for Cascadia students, Cascadia IS has updated their laptop circulation service. 


With the COVID19-related closure of the Campus Library, laptops checked out after March 2nd have had due dates extended to August 28, 2020. If you have a Library laptop and need to return it while the Library is closed, please email Library Technology Services at, or leave a message on the phone at 425-352-3145.  Please do not return laptops using the Library's book drops.

Current UW Bothell students may checkout one of the 25 Take-Home laptops funded by UWB STF in 2018.

Current Cascadia students may have access to laptops circulated by the Cascadia Information Services Helpdesk in CC2-171 (First floor of CC2).

Laptops circulated by the Campus Library are ONLY available to current UWB students.  (Not staff or faculty)  Using these laptops requires a UW NetID to logon to them while on campus! The current laptops are 15 inch Dells with touch screens, built in webcams, and backlit keyboards that include a 10-key.  All of the laptops can access the campus wireless network, and there are also several work tables throughout the Library with available Ethernet cables for wired Internet access.

We cannot reserve or hold laptops, and they CANNOT be renewed.   Students must present their current Husky card for checkouts, and may be asked to show additional photo ID. (No manual checkouts are allowed.)  Students may not checkout another laptop the same day they return one.

Laptops may be checked out for up to 7 days, and must be returned before the Library closes on the 7th day, including any weekend day, to avoid a daily fine.  For any Library closure, including holidays or inclement weather, laptops will be due by closing on the next day the Library is open.  Fines accrue for laptops at a daily rate, including days the library is closed if it is already past the due date.  Failure to return a laptop, will result in being billed the replacement cost of the laptop, a non-refundable fine, and a lost item processing fee.  (Visit for more information.)  Laptops may have limited availability during the interims between quarters.

Keep laptops secure and safe!  You may be responsible for any and all damages to the laptop, or its loss, up to and including the full replacement cost of the laptop.  Please read the Computer Use Policy on the UWB/CC Campus Library website for other restrictions that may apply. DO NOT leave laptops unattended, or return laptops in the book drops!  You are responsible for their safe return and will still accrue fines.  Be sure to save any files you create on your own media, disk, or network drive. All files on the laptop may be deleted upon check-in.

Equipment will not be checked in without all of the accessories it was checked out with. (power adaptor, disk drives, cases, cables, etc.)  FAILURE TO RETURN A LAPTOP MAY RESULT IN THE LOSS OF LAPTOP PRIVILEGES.

Software on Circulating Laptops

The software available on the circulated laptops is a subset of the licensed software installed on the computers in the Information Commons.  See the Software tab for more information.
