Technology Loaner Program

The University is committed to ensuring that you can complete your coursework online during the Fall 2020 semester. In preparation for students to effectively learn online, NJCU has purchased and will be distributing some loaner laptops or iPads to those who do not have access to a personal computer. In addition, NJCU has secured some loaner mobile Wi-Fi hotspots for those who do not have access to the Internet.  

Note: NJCU students in need of a computer and/or Internet access to complete their coursework can utilize the technology resources available in the Library and Computer Labs in the Professional Studies building, room 103, during the Fall 2020 semester. 

If you need assistance in securing a laptop/iPad or mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, please submit a request by (logging into GothicNet) and selecting the “Technology Loaner Request” tile on the landing Student Homepage on GothicNet.
