Please Return Technology


Students, if you have stopped using your GRCC laptop (or other technology*) checked out from GRCC’s Library, please return it to the Circulation Desk immediately so we can check it out to students who need it.

We’re down to ZERO laptops to check out right now, although we have plenty of Chromebooks to lend. Chromebooks don’t work with lockdown browsers used for testing.

All technology is due back December 17. Laptops are on a timer which will lock out/close at the end of the Fall Semester, when IT will reimage and update them for Winter checkouts.

*Technology for check-out:

  • Laptops
  • Chromebooks
  • Wireless / mobile hotspots
  • Webcams
  • Headsets

Printing Help

During the first few weeks of school, it seems that everyone needs to print out a syllabus, first assignment, or class notes. If you are using a personal device and want to print on a GRCC printer, see these Student Printing from a Personal Device instructions.

Select the steps for the operating system your device uses, including: Microsoft Windows; Android; Chrome OS; macOS; or, IOS. Follow the instructions to enable your device. Voila! – you have access to the multifunction printers / copiers / scanners across campus – not just in the Library.

Check out the IT Support Portal for other helpful information technology documents on topics including: email; Google Drive; resetting passwords; Student Virtual Lab using VMWare; and, free Microsoft Office 365 for current students, staff, and faculty.

As always, if you’re in the Library and are stumped with technology, ask for help at the Reference Desk.

Technology checked out for summer was due August 18. If you have any technology overdue, please return it immediately in person to the Library Circulation Desk. Books may be returned in the blue book drop at the Library entrance.
