Equipment Checkout

The ITS Help Desk provides faculty, staff, and students access to laptops and headsets as well as a variety of audio-visual equipment to support instruction. Our goal is to serve the entire university as effectively as possible.  In order to do this, we ask that faculty and staff who have access to departmentally-owned equipment use that whenever possible. We also do not take any semester-long orders for equipment.
