Laptops that are available for long-term loan are imaged with our standard computer lab image. The login process is similar to logging into a lab workstation when you are on-campus, however when not on the Loyola network, using your standard University Network ID is not able to communicate to our authentication servers. As a result, each laptop has a local account created for use. We strongly recommend using this account whether on- or off-campus.
