LCC has moved to online-only. All classes will be conducted online, except for a few that will be suspended. All campuses closed. Visit for details.

Lansing Community College Library

Laptops for Checkout

To help with the move to online learning, LCC is offering laptops for students to borrow. The laptops will be available under the library’s lending program to take home and use for classwork until the college’s physical locations reopen.

Since all campus buildings are closed, LCC’s Public Safety office will distribute the laptops. You can pick them up 7 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday until the laptops are all checked out. They are available on a first come, first serve basis. The Public Safety office is located in the Gannon Building. You will need to enter Public Safety through the “after hours” door, located off the Mall. You can call Public Safety at 517-483-1800. You will need to bring a valid ID card, and provide a working phone number.

If you already have a laptop checked out from the Library, you don't need to return it now. 

Internet Access

Below are some options for getting internet set up at your home:


Due to COVID-19, some software companies are offering extended trials or temporary access. If there is software you need for a course, check the software company’s website. As an LCC student, you can install Microsoft Office products for free on your computer.


The Computer Lab is located on the 3rd floor of TLC in Room 321. The lab has PCs, Macs and an Art Cad machine. Computers are also available in the West Campus Computer Lab.
