Laptops and Wi-Fi hotspots are available to registered Blackhawk students at all BTC campuses. They can be checked out from the Library in the Student Success Center on Central Campus, much like one would check out any other material.

They can be checked out for weekly or semester-long intervals, or after the semester starts can be checked out for daily on-site use in MyEdChoice classes. The equipment loan program will allow students to borrow laptops and Wi-Fi hotspots at no additional charge to the student.

Got questions? We are here to help.

For more information on the loan program, call (608) 757-7705 or email
