Loaner Laptop Program

Information regarding loaner laptops provided by the EIT Service Desk.

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

All loaner laptops owned by the Service Desk MUST be returned in a timely manner. If you need a laptop for work or work from home, please contact your department about ordering one for you.

The majority of our loaner laptops are Windows 10, though we have a limited number of Mac loaners occasionally available.
