Laptop Loan Scheme


The City laptop loan scheme is now open for 2021-2022

The College has a laptop loan scheme to help with your studies. Please note that we have a limited amount of laptops available and there may be a waiting period to receive one. If you already have an IT device, or have access to one, then please continue to use this device and do not submit a request on this page. We will contact students from 9 August to inform them of our decisions. 

Eligibility and Priority Groups

To be eligible for a laptop loan you must meet the criteria below

  • You must be a Home (UK) student and meet the Residency Criteria.
  • You must be an enrolled student.

Where the demand for laptops is greater than the supply available, we will prioritise the following student categories:

  • Full time students.
  • Those with additional support needs such as a disability or care experienced student.
  • Those from low-income families (we may require evidence of your funding status).

The following are examples of types of laptops and software that will be required for your course and that the College can provide through this loan scheme:

  • Type 1: entry level, HP ProBook 640 G5 for basic applications.
  • Type 2: mid-range level HP Probook 650 G5 more storage and faster processing.
  • Type 3: higher range specification HP EliteBook 850 G6 for computing, digital and gaming courses. 


This scheme is limited and operated subject to availability. All loan equipment is owned by City of Glasgow College.
