At IU, what is the ATAC's assistive technology loan program?

At Indiana University, the Assistive Technology and Accessibility Centers (ATAC) offer an assistive technology (AT) loan program to support the needs of students, faculty, and staff with various disability- and injury-related issues. Items come from the ATAC's AT library, which consists of assistive technologies commonly used by individuals in the higher education environment. Access to this service is determined on a user-by-user basis by the ATAC and the referring office.

Students

Students on any IU campus who are referred to the ATAC due to a disability or injury, may be eligible to check out assistive software and/or hardware based on the recommendation of their campus disability services office. Students can borrow AT at no charge on a semester-by-semester basis. The ATAC staff are available to provide consultation, training, and support as needed.

Faculty and staff

Faculty and staff referred to the ATAC due to a disability or injury can check out assistive software and hardware on a short-term trial basis. To determine your referring office, visit ADA@IU. The ATAC staff are available to provide consultation, training, and support as needed.

For academic use

Instructors and students can receive short-term loans of assistive technologies for use in research, class projects, and demonstrations. Contact the ATAC for more information.
