Student Laptop Distribution

Laptops are still available as of September 9, 2020!

  • Students residing on campus can access the campus wireless network in the residence halls. Students at off-campus residences must utilize commercial internet service providers (ISPs) available in their area.
  • Students can access University-licensed software via CorsairDesktop.
  • Time-limited free access to commercial software.
  • Laptops are distributed on a first-come-first-served basis while supplies last.

Getting Help - Updated CITS Service Procedures

CITS has limited staff on campus. IT service continues by appointment only.

  1. Request CITS support via the online IT Help form or the CITS support number at 508.999.8900. When you leave a voice message or submit a support request online, please be specific on how and when CITS staff can reach you. Calls outside the CITS service hours will be directed to the 24/7 IT help desk.

  2. CITS staff will reach out to you within one business day to schedule a remote support session. CITS staff may need to connect to your computer remotely to be able to assist you.

  3. CITS staff will assess if an in-person appointment is necessary.

Thank you very much for your understanding and cooperation.
