The Student Technology Loan Program (STLP) is a free, student-led program that supports the academic technology needs of UW Seattle students by eliminating barriers to technology access. STLP provides equal access to modern technology tools to enrich the student experience by allowing for the creation and development of ideas and projects into their best possible form. In this way, STLP facilitates learning both inside and outside of the classroom.
