Available free iPads and hotspots for students

Aug. 3, 2020

 

Dear Fresno State students,


Welcome to the fall semester! 

As we continue to transition to mostly virtual instruction for the fall, we are here to support you with the technology and tools to make this semester a success. 

Fresno State is providing a hotspot and/or iPad with a keyboard for any enrolled students who are in need of a device or high-speed internet.

These mobile hotspots provide you with high-speed internet at home or on the go. Both the iPads and the hotspots will be provided free of charge to students and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Devices will be due back at the end of the semester.

If you are interested in getting an iPad or a hotspot, please select a time to pick up your device using this link: https://forms.gle/TyfrbeUj7nYYqBTX7.

Devices will be distributed at our DISCOVERe Hub in the Henry Madden Library.

You must have an appointment to pick up your device. Please wear a facial covering and have your student ID card or ID number available and follow social-distancing procedures posted within the library.

*Returning students who already have a hotspot: Your hotspot data plan will be automatically reactivated on Aug. 10. You will not need to do anything to have it reactivated.

If you have any additional questions regarding the DISCOVERe device loaner program, please visit our website here, or contact us at Discovere@mail.fresnostate.edu or 559.278.1812.

 

Sincerely,  

Mike Pronovost

Director of DISCOVERe
