Tech Tip: Getting a loaner computer

We get it, so much has changed since March 2020. One of those things that has gone through a few variations is our loaner laptop program. Below is information on how we are handling loaner laptops for students, staff and faculty:

Student Loaner – laptops are still being loaned through the Library on a first come, first served basis. 

Staff Loaners – Staff loans can be obtained from Information Technology. Due to limited resources, only employees who do not already have a laptop as their primary device or those traveling are eligible for the loaner laptop service.

Full-time faculty and staff who have a desktop as their primary device are eligible to upgrade to a laptop at no additional charge to their department. Please note: the IT Department does not require justification, nor limits the number of devices a department may purchase.

As such, these devices are not covered under the lifecycle replacement process unless assigned to a full-time employee as their primary device.

A loaner may be requested by filling out a short form in our Customer Support Portal (Please press request service at the top right hand corner of the page). Once this form is filled out and submitted, an IT Staff member will reach out regarding next steps to your GRCC Staff Email account. 

For more information and helpful tips, please visit the IT Customer Support Portal or contact the IT Customer Support Desk at x4357.
