Faculty/Staff Laptop & Projector Check-Out

Faculty and staff can check out laptops, tablets, projectors, and a portable screen for work-related purposes through the Service Desk.

Important: If you will be using a check out laptop on campus for group events, make sure to connect the laptop to the UWSP network 3 to 4 hours prior to the event to ensure potential updates install.

Information Technology makes every effort to ensure that check out laptops have received all critical updates. It is, however, possible that updates may occur during your check out period when the laptop connects to the UWSP network.
