Laptop Loan Program

Please reach out to Nimna.Perera@monash.edu to find out more or make arrangements to loan a laptop.

Take note:

  • Students are limited to borrowing one laptop at any given time for a maximum period of two weeks, at which point they must return the laptop. If there are no subsequent bookings then the student may request to extend their booking.
  • If all laptops are loaned out, students can be added to a waitlist and will be contacted when there is a laptop available for them.
  • Graduate students will need to read the terms and conditions outlined for this program and leave a photocopy of their student ID with the PPA at the time of borrowing.
  • The laptops can be borrowed within PPA hours.
  • If there are any problems with the laptop, bring it back to the PPA to resolve, please do not try to fix it yourself.
