Mobile Laptop Cart


The Mobile Laptop Cart is equipped with 32 Dell Lattitude laptops available for checkout; an additional three (3) laptops may be requested (for a total of 35 laptops) if needed. The Mobile Laptop Cart may be reserved for use, day or night, during normal operating hours.

The Mobile Laptop Cart (MLC) is available for the main building use only so we can offer the best possible service to you and your students. During high volume hours between 7:30AM through 2:30PM the MLC will be delivered to your classroom by the start of class. At the end of class we will retrieve the MLC and return it for you.

This service is provided as a courtesy to you and your students. Help us extend this service to everyone by having all laptops stored in the cart and ready for pick-up by end of class. In addition, please do not ask the staff member delivering and picking-up the MLC for IT support, reporting, or requests as these matters should go directly to the Helpdesk 527-4357.

Scheduling, Delivery, Pick-Up (main building use only):

    • Your start & end time will be highlighted (green and red). If the MLC is unavailable, it will be blocked out in dark blue. You can use the scroll bar at the bottom to view an alternative date or time. Note: this feature can be used for reserving the Resource and Conference Rooms!
