Loaner Laptop Program

The EIT Service Desk offers laptops for temporary use by Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students in our Units.

We have a number of laptops available for both short-term (3 days to 1 week) and long-term (2-4 weeks) use. All loaner laptops owned by the Service Desk MUST be returned to the Service Desk in a timely manner. The majority of our loaner laptops are Windows 10, though we have a limited number of Mac and Chromebook loaners occasionally available.

If you need a laptop for work or work from home, please contact your department about ordering one for you.

Short-Term Loaners - 3 days to 1 week

  • Typically for visitors to the University or short domestic travel for work events. 
  • Standard local account
  • Data is not stored locally, and is wiped after logout, due to security concerns.
Long-Term Loaners - 2-4 weeks
  • Typically for use while either waiting on your own laptop repair, or waiting for your new laptop to arrive.

  • Limited administrative access
  • Data is wiped after return to the Service Desk
All loaners come with the following stored in the loaner backpack:
