ETS offers loaner laptops exclusively to College of Education faculty and staff when traveling for extended periods of time. The ETS Loaner Program for Travel is meant to lessen security risks by addressing the need to have access to a laptop while protecting university data from becoming compromised. If you plan on travelling abroad, a free travel loaner laptop will make it much easier by allowing access to University systems without unnecessarily exposing data you may not need in your travels to increased security risk or compromise.
The ETS Loaner Program for Travel includes a laptop with a 14” diagonal screen for optimal viewing.
