Who can borrow equipment?

The fine print.

  • When returning a mobile device, you must wait for library staff to check for damage and issue you a return receipt, which is proof you returned it. This process takes several minutes.
  • Disputes about equipment can only be resolved upon your presentation of a return receipt.

Connecting in dorms and off-campus.

  • Library laptops cannot be connected to MyResNet. Only personal devices registered via Pitt IT can connect to MyResNet.
  • Laptop borrowers must log in to Wireless-PittNet and sign into the computer with their Pitt credentials at least once prior to leaving campus.
    • If the laptop loan period is less than one day: shutting off the laptop will reset it and you will no longer be able to log in off-campus.

What about my liability?

  • You are responsible for the equipment while it is checked out to you
  • Do not leave equipment unattended at any time
  • If equipment is lost, stolen or damaged while it is checked out to you, you are responsible
  • When using equipment, please bring any problems to the attention of library staff immediately
  • While using a laptop, users must also comply with all University of Pittsburgh Computer Account Policies
