Laptop Loan Scheme Information
In addition to the IT facilities and services available on campus, the University of Glasgow can also assist students who require a laptop for their studies. Students can request a laptop on a long-term loan basis from the University of Glasgow.
Laptops are provided on a loan basis for the full academic year but should be returned before then if no longer required.
If you require a laptop for your studies but cannot afford to purchase one at this time, please apply for the Discretionary Fund, which can assist with your living costs. After applying for the fund you can request a laptop via the University of Glasgow Laptop Loan Scheme. You do not need to wait on the outcome of your fund application before requesting a laptop.
If you have received funding from the Discretionary Fund or Hardship Fund previously, you can request a laptop direct via the University of Glasgow Laptop Loan Scheme immediately. You are also encouraged to apply for the Discretionary Fund should you require further financial assistance.
