Kellogg Community College students in need of a computer to complete coursework for their summer classes can purchase or borrow a laptop from KCC for the semester.

Students can borrow a laptop now; the option to purchase a laptop via the Bruin Bookstore will be available beginning May 5.

How to Borrow a Laptop from KCC

KCC has a limited number of laptops available for current KCC students who would like to borrow one for the semester. The Dell laptops are available on a first come, first served basis, and are equipped to provide students access to web browsers, word processing and other basic applications necessary to complete KCC coursework.

To borrow a laptop from KCC for your summer coursework:

  1. Contact the KCC Help Desk at to request a laptop.
  2. Sign an equipment loan agreement (electronically in advance or in person at pickup) regarding the use and liability for the laptop.
  3. Pick up the laptop on campus at 450 North Ave. in Battle Creek. After showing your current picture ID, you will receive the laptop, a charging cord and a copy of the loan agreement.
  4. Contact the Help Desk to arrange for the laptop return or for answers to any technical questions about the laptop’s operation.
