Where can I check out computer equipment on campus (laptops, chargers)?


All faculty, staff and students with a UNCW OneCard have the ability to check out computer equipment from the TAC.

  1. All items from the TAC are available for 6 hour checkouts.
    • Damage or failure to return equipment within this 6-hour time frame may result in charges to your account.
    • If TAC is closed when you go to return your equipment, please return it to the Security Desk at the front of the library.
  2. Laptops that can be taken anywhere (even off-campus) can be rented from TAC Repairs for $8/day. TAC Repairs is located to the right of the TAC front desk.
  3. The Information Desk located in the Fisher Student Center also rents laptops for 4 hours free of charge. Laptops from the Information Desk cannot leave Campus Life buildings.

*Please note: The equipment below is currently available to individual students. With the exception of portable power banks, this equipment cannot leave the library. 

  • Dell Laptops
  • Dell Chargers
  • Apple Macbook Pros
  • Mac Chargers (Magsafe, Magsafe 2, and USB-C)
  • Portable Power Banks

Power Banks 

TAC offers portable power banks that allow you to charge your device without needing to find an outlet. The power bank has two USB ports and an AC outlet to charge laptops, cameras, phones, and more. This will allow you to charge your device anywhere on campus, even outside. You will just need a charger. Wireless phone charging is also supported. 


Phone Charging

*Please note: The charging station is currently out of order.


  1. TAC has a station to securely charge your Android or Apple device. Your device is secured in a locker with a pin code. The station has Apple Lightning cables and USB compatibility for common Android phones.
  2. TAC’s power banks can wirelessly charge phones. Wireless charging is supported on a variety of Android phones and iPhone 8 and newer. Place your phone on the side of the power bank with the TAC sticker. You may have to adjust the angle of the phone until it begins charging. Wireless charging will be slower than wired charging. 


If you need further assistance, please contact the TAC at 910-962-4357, or submit a service request.
