Distribution of loaner computers to faculty and staff

by in , , , , 0

Information Technology Services (ITS) will be distributing laptops to faculty and staff who currently do not have a computer for remote work.

The current priority (where 1=highest priority) is:

  1. Faculty teaching a class or otherwise designated a priority by Academic Affairs
  2. Staff designated by their department
  3. Any staff or faculty working remotely
ITS can distribute 120 used Dell Ultrabook Laptops retired from a classroom this week. If the supply of these computers is depleted, ITS has other pools of computers that can be configured.  All loaner computers will have a camera, microphone, and are imaged for use by CSUCI employees. They are both Zoom, Canvas, Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Office ready as delivered. If employees need specialized software installed they can file a ticket for assistance or call the Solution Center at 805-437-8552. If possible, they will be directed to self-install software or will be instructed how to participate in a remote session with an ITS technician. In certain cases an appointment with an ITS technician on campus may be needed.

Here is the loaner computer pick-up process for University faculty and staff:
  1. First file a ticket in TeamDynamix or contact the Solution Center at 805-437-8552 to request a computer.
  2. ITS will contact your Department or Division as needed to confirm priority.
  3. Pickup location will be at the Lindero Hall courtyard, outside of the Human Resources entrance.
