We are here for you!

Loaner Chromebooks and Laptops Available

We want you to stay enrolled in your classes and succeed from home! Cabrillo staff members have been hard at work to help those without access to technology devices, and have secured Chromebooks and a smaller number of laptops, to loan out to students like you!

Cabrillo is loaning out technology equipment for your Fall semester use. Those students who are enrolled in both Fall and Spring semesters can keep their equipment through the end of Spring semester

If you are currently registered for Fall semester and will need technology, please fill out Cabrillo's NEW Hardware Equipment Loan Program (HELP) form (even if you filled out the previous form, you still need to fill out this new form).

Please note, equipment loans will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Here's how:

  1. Log in to Cabrillo's Self Service using your Student ID and Password.
  2. Once in Etrieve Central, click Forms (left side), and in the Student menu, scroll down to and select the IT HELP Form (it should look like this).
  3. Complete and submit the form.
  4. You will receive an email response from Cabrillo.
  5. Once you have received an email that your request has been approved, you can pick it up at the time and location that you selected in the form.
