Laptop Checkout

Any student requiring a UNT laptop (mac or pc) for general remote learning can also be checked out from the library both on a 24 hour basis or a semester long basis if needed.  The library is now the primary location for students to acquire laptops on campus. Click here  for more information.

The music lab does have a limited supply of specialized mac laptops for graduate student use in support of teaching duties if the library laptops are unable to run specialized software or they have run out of inventory, but we encourage you to first investigate what they have to offer before Submitting a Music Lab Laptop Request.
