The MGA Laptop Program

Temporarily suspended:

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 we are unable to continue the Laptop Program until further notice.

We know that it can be hard getting a seat in the computer labs.

The MGA now has a number of laptops available at the Caulfield office, which are exclusively available to Monash graduates to borrow and use for study purposes.

Students are limited to borrowing one laptop at any given time for a maximum period of two weeks, at which point they must return the laptop to the MGA office from which it was borrowed. If there are no subsequent bookings then the student may request to extend their booking.

Graduate students will need to read terms and conditions outlined for this program and leave a photocopy of their student ID with the MGA at the time of borrowing. The laptops can be borrowed within MGA office hours as outlined below.

If there are any problems with the laptop, bring it to the MGA reception for the receptionists to resolve, please do not try to fix it yourself.

If you encounter any issues or have questions you need answering relating to the borrowing of MGA laptops, please contact:
