Laptop Borrowing

AUC students, faculty and staff are eligible for laptop borrowing from the Library. The loan period is up to one week, with no renewals, for equal opportunity. Borrowing is handled in person through the service desk on the plaza floor. The borrower should present an active AUC ID card and confirm the laptop borrowing declaration form after reading and accepting the laptop borrowing policy.

Important Note: Borrowers must pick up and return the laptop on/before the due date, between 9:00 am – 3:30 pm, Sundays to Thursdays, excluding official holidays, at the Library's service desk, noting that the Library is closed daily from 2:00 pm to 2:30 pm for disinfection. Visit the Library hours page for the latest updates.
