How do I borrow a WiFi Hotspot?

Answer

The library has 50 T-Mobile WiFi Hotspots (small devices that generate a WiFi network) available to borrow for free for students without internet access at home. 

Step to getting a Wi-Fi Hotspot:

  1. Fill out the BTC Wi-Fi application Form. You can fill out the application if you are enrolled in Fall 2024 classes on August 12th 
  2. Your application will be approved, denied or waitlisted, you will receive notification in your BTC email from library@blackhawk.edu. 
  3. If approved, or waitlisted and a device becomes available, pick it up at the Library Help Desk in the Student Success Center anytime we are open. You will need you're government issued photo ID and to read and sign the loan agreement. 
  4. Take-home equipment, return the device in the original box on or before the due date
