Affordable Connectivity Program

Affordable Connectivity Program is an FCC benefit program that helps ensure that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more. The benefit provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward internet service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they contribute more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price. The Affordable Connectivity Program is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household. UH students can find eligibility requirements here.

Laptop Loan Programs

Students may borrow laptops from their home campus. Duration of the loan will vary per campus.

Please be aware that because you must come to campus in-person, masking continues to be required in classrooms, shared laboratory spaces and tightly confined education spaces, and in campus venues when the number of attendees is close to maximum capacity or if it is anticipated that high numbers of higher-risk persons will be attending according to the University of Hawaiʻi COVID-19 guidelines regarding masking.
