Resources & Services
While some of the resources we offer in partnership with other offices/groups are open to all students, other services available through Breaking Barriers are primarily for students registered with our program.
Laptop Loaner Program
Students may request to check-out a laptop for more than 1 week by having either the Dean for Student Support & Belonging or your Advising Dean submit a request to the library on their behalf. This resource is available to all students.
Calculator Loaner Program
Students may request to check-out a scientific calculator for at most one full academic year and expected to return the calculator before leaving for winter or summer break. If you need a calculator for an additional semester, you will be asked to complete another Request Form at the start of the new semester.
Meal Pass Request
Meal passes to Bryn Mawr's Dining Halls are offered to Bryn Mawr students who are not part of the unlimited meal plan.
Regardless of whether you are enrolled in a partial meal plan or no meal plan at all, we understand that there may be moments when you may find yourself either low on meals and/or funds. That said, this service is meant to be utilized on an on occasion basis.
Storage Transportation Service
Round-trip transportation to storage facilities during campus move-in and move-out are offered to students who are unable to set up their own accommodations due to affordability and/or access. Additionally, students are encouraged to attend one of our Storage Workshops held during the spring semester.
In partnership with Bryn Mawr's Student Government Association, we are excited to offer students free storage boxes to store their belongings in time for move-out. Students are granted at most 6 medium-sized 21 in. L x 15 in. W x 16 in. D cardboard boxes by Home Depot. This resource is available to all students.
Dorm Essentials Request
Primarily for first-year students who need dorm materials for personal use. All items available through this service have been generously donated from current students as well as students who recently graduated from Bryn Mawr College. Items are thoroughly washed and stored in sealed vacuum storage bags.
