Can I renew semester-length items for Summer semester?
Please submit an equipment request and specify what you would like to renew for Summer semester. In some cases, we will need to get laptops back for critical updates.
Can I renew 30-day items?
Items with limited inventory can only be renewed if we are caught up on requests for them. Submit an equipment request a few days before the due date. Depending on inventory, we will either renew it for an additional 30 days or add you back to the waiting list.
How do I install software on a laptop?
First check the available software list, as some software can be installed on demand. For other software, submit a request by clicking the "Problem" dock icon (Mac) or "Problem - Suggest" desktop icon (Windows). We will respond to your request as soon as possible. Some software installation requests may take up to two weeks. Some software may not be installed due to security and privacy issues.
Why am I getting an error when installing an application in Software Center?
We are investigating occasional issues with installation. Please try connecting to the VPN and then attempting to install again. If you are still having trouble, click the "Problem - Suggest" desktop icon to report the issue.
Why am I unable to log in to a laptop?
Typically you need to be on campus the first time you log in, using your uNID and password. After the first login, you can take the laptop off campus and use the same credentials to log in again. If you have a Windows computer, you can follow instructions to log in off campus.
Why is an item I returned still checked out to me?
All returns will be quarantined for 7 days prior to being checked in. Any fines accrued during the quarantine will be removed when the item is checked in.
