Equipment Details

Dell 5480 Laptop image




There are ten Dell Latitude 5480s on reserve at our infodesk, ready to be checked out. These laptops boast an 8 GB DDR4 SDRAM for great processing speed, an integrated 256 GB Solid State Drive, and a vibrant image on its 14-inch Display utilizing WLED backlighting technology and high resolution of 1920 x 1080.

Having Trouble?

Our most common issues concern logging in and WiFi connection. If you are having trouble logging in, restart the computer. If you are still unable to log in after three tries, the front desk will be happy to exchange it for you. If you are having trouble connecting to the WiFi, make sure you are logged into the student server. Your username is the first half of your wwu student email (ex. doejohn), and the password is the universal password for your student email as well.


Penalty Policy and Customer Responsibility

Once returned,

  • The first late return will result in a warning and a mark by your name.
  • The second time will result in a one week, no-checkout period for the student.
  • The third time will result in a no-checkout period for the student for the rest of the quarter.
