COVID Relief Technology Access

Through collaborative efforts with Student Academic Success, the Dean of Students office, UofM Libraries, and ITS, we are able to offer technology for students to check out to assist with virtual classes.

Students can visit the Checkout Desk on McWherter Library’s 1st floor to request items. A UofM ID is required to check out technology. Check McWherter Library hours before visiting.

Questions? Contact the Checkout Desk at 901.678.2205.
