Guidelines & Reminders

  • The device is your responsibility while it is checked out to you. Never leave it unattended.
  • The laptops are wiped of all personal information when returned.
  • You cannot install additional software on the MacBooks.
  • You can download apps onto the Chromebooks.
  • Do not sync your iPod or other MP3 players with iTunes. You might lose information as the laptops are set to erase.
  • Hotspot networks are freely and easily accessible and are unsecure. Neither the Service Provider nor Mesa Community College cannot be held responsible for any files, data, confidential or personal information that is accessed, transmitted, lost or damaged as a result of using the hotspot.

Saving Your Work

  • Do not save any files to the laptop's hard drive when using an in-Library use device. They will be erased when the laptop is turned off.
  • Files can be saved to a personal storage device or your student Google Drive.

Technical Help & Respondus

  • If you experience problems with your borrowed laptop, please return it to the appropriate desk. You will be given another laptop, if available.
  • Technical Support and Software Application questions may be directed to MCC Helpcenter.
  • If you need to take a test using the Respondus Lockdown Browser on a Chromebook, the computer needs to be put in Kiosk mode:
  1. Send an email to that includes: a) the date and time you wish to take the test; and, b) the 6-digit tag number on the bottom of the computer.
  2. When the machine asks for your institution when in Respondus, type Maricopa Community Colleges.
  3. When done taking the test, email again so Kiosk mode can be turned off and you can go back to using the computer like normal.
