Students are encouraged to individually secure the necessary technology required to support their academic program requirements. Here is information on awards, scholarships, and bursaries.
Laptops are available to any currently enrolled Georgian College student at any campus (Barrie, Orillia, Owen Sound, Midland, South Georgian Bay, Orangeville, Muskoka). Students must be in an academic semester taking courses and living in Ontario. Students may only loan a laptop for one academic semester (fall or winter or summer) within the academic year. Laptops can only be picked up at the Barrie campus library. Laptops are not available to students who are in a work term. Georgian is trying to help students without technology access, while many courses are being delivered online. Georgian cannot guarantee that all requests will be filled. Limited quantities are available.
Laptops have been distributed for the Summer 2022 semester
