Attention All Students
The Government Laptop Loan Scheme is now closed for the current academic year 2020/2021.
The scheme will reopen in September 2021 with a limited number of laptops available.
N.B. You must upload the required Financial Documentation in support of you application, no matter which entry path you select
For customer support please call Pro Support on 1850 964 270. All Laptops are covered with 5 year support.
To be eligible for a laptop you must be registered as a full or part-time student in 2020-21 and be from one of the designated 'disadvantaged' groups eligible under this government scheme. Eligibility will be on a needs basis and in accordance with the guidelines. UL must be satisfied that a student who receives a device under this grant has demonstrated the financial need for the device to access their programme of study - e.g. they or their family do not have the means to purchase such a device themselves. In deciding which students should receive a device, institutions are required to allocate them on the basis of the target groups identified in the National Plan for Equity of Access to Higher Education 2015 - 2021:
Students registered with a disability at UL or who have accessed UL through DARE and who can demonstrate a financial need
Further Education Award holders - i.e. those who have entered UL via QQI/FET pathways and demonstrate a need
Members of the Traveller and/or Roma communities
Other ethnic minorities, asylum seekers or University of Limerick Sanctuary students domiciled in Ireland
Any combination of one or more of the above.
