The LSUE LeDoux Library offers laptops available for students to check-out.  Any laptop not returned will be charged to your fee bill. You must be an LSUE STUDENT with a student ID to be eligible for Gear2Geaux. You can request in person to be put on a waiting list for a laptop. The Library will contact you if one becomes available. Your request does not carry over to the next day, nor will you be contacted if a laptop becomes available less than 2 hours before the Library closes.

  • A current, validated LSUE Student ID is required for check-out.
