International Travel Laptop Loans

What Is It?

The International Travel Laptop Loan service provides laptops to employees traveling abroad for official University business. Regular UTRGV laptops must not be taken to high-risk countries1. The maximum loan period is three months, unless otherwise approved.

To request a loaner laptop, use the Request Service button and provide details such as the high-risk country of destination, travel dates, and attach a completed and signed PDF form. Requests should be submitted at least four weeks before travel.

Upon return, avoid connecting the laptop to the UTRGV network and return it directly to IT.
