There are a variety of loaner and rental laptops, hotspots, and other equipment available to members of the MIT community. The equipment available to you is dependent upon the context of your request, your student status, and your need for the equipment.
IS&T maintains a limited pool of computing equipment available for loan that may be requested by MIT students, faculty, and staff who do not possess equipment with which to learn or teach remotely. For more information, program guidelines, and information on how to request a laptop, hotspot and/or other peripherals please see:
The ability to collaborate on p-sets and projects is essential to the MIT experience, and many faculty members will expect students to have a tablet computer in addition to a laptop so that they can collaborate – in class and elsewhere. To ensure students and TAs are equipped for collaboration, IS&T will loan an Apple iPad and Apple Pencil to any undergraduate student, graduate TA, or faculty member who needs one.
