Checkout Equipment

Equipment Available for Checkout

If you would like to checkout a hotspot or laptop email support@cfc.umt.edu and be sure to include your instructor's/advisor's name.  We can check them out for a semester.

Also, the Library has a limited supply of laptops, hotspots, and webcams for students to checkout.  You can check out the items for 1 month.  Students can extend their checkouts for an additional month if the item being extended is not out of stock.  

What is a hotspot?

Wireless hotspots are wireless access points, that you can take with you to provide internet access to mobile devices such as your laptop or smartphone.

Because there is a limited supply please only check out items that you really need.
