  • Laptops are remotely locked if not returned within 1 hour of the scheduled return time.
  • Windows laptops have been rented from a third party company and Terms & Conditions may change at any time.
  • Cal Poly is not responsible for damage to personal equipment used in conjunction with Tech Rental equipment.
  • Equipment must be returned in the condition in which it was received. Lost or damaged equipment will be charged to you at current replacement costs.
