Borrowing Exam Laptops and Assistive Technology

Student Accessibility Services lends registered students secure laptops for exams as well as limited assistive technology. Specific questions about “locked down” computer exams or assistive technology can be addressed to [email protected].


Borrowing a Secure Exam Computer

Students who are approved to use locked laptops for exams can utilize personal or SAS computers at the discretion of the instructor. If a SAS loaner laptop is needed, it must be reserved in advance with SAS in order to plan pick up and drop off. SAS hours of operation are M-F 8:30-5:00 pm. We are unable to come before work hours or stay after hours to wait for computers to be picked-up or returned from exams. The instructor will need to make arrangements to receive the computer the previous day for early morning exams. For evening/weekend exams, the instructor or proctor will need to keep the computer overnight, and return the computer to SAS the next day. 


You can reserve a SAS secure computer through this link.

Students registered with SAS can borrow Assistive Technology based on their disability needs.  If you think that you may need to request assistive technology, please email [email protected] or call our office at 401-863-9588 and make an appointment to meet one of our staff.  Once your request is approved you will need to complete the Equipment Loan Contract form at this link.
