A2 - Can I borrow a laptop to teach?

The borrowing option will be limited to those faculty who are not already assigned a USNH laptop and who teach in one of the above classrooms (16 at KSC and 10 at PSU) that have been upgraded to the BYOD standard.

  • The loaner laptops will be available as Mac OS or as Windows OS.
  • The laptop will come in a protective case and have the proper adapter (dongle).
  • The loan period will be for the entire semester. For example, for the fall semester you would be able to pick the laptop up at the KSC Help Desk in Elliot Hall (or a location at PSU TBD) in August and drop the laptop back off in mid-December.
  • During semester breaks, our ET&S team would provide routine updates and maintenance.

We will reach out via email with more information.
