Recycled Computer Request
IT retains a limited pool of desktop-type computers (recycled laptops are generally not provided) that are retired from primary service. We refer to them as Recycled Computers. A recycle computer has often been in service for three (3) to five (5) years.
These computers are out of warranty and will not be repaired if they fail, nor will IT assist with data recovery.
Usually a Recycled Computer is requested for use as a Student Employee workstation, for special projects or in a laboratory. If you would like to request a Recycled Computer for your department, please fully complete the form below. Please complete this form for each Recycled Computer request. Multiple requests per submission will be deleted.
Requests are due to Information Technology by 5pm, July 20 for Fall semester and by 5pm, December 20 for Spring semester. Requests made after that will be considered and filled only as time and equipment allow. You must make requests by the deadline to ensure that they will be installed by the start of the semester.
While all computers have the ability to be connected to the network, it is your responsibility to confirm that the location in which the computer will be installed has the necessary network connectivity. Please contact Information Technology if you need assistance making this assessment.
If you are replacing an existing Recycled Computer, please back up all data to another location (external hard drive, USB flash drive, WebDisk, or Network drive). Due to the volume of student accounts on Recycled computers, it is not possible for us to transfer any data to another recycled computer. Furthermore, it is advised that no important data be stored on a recycled computer. Data will not be recovered if the hard drive fails.
Remember: These computers are out of warranty and will not be repaired if they fail, nor will IT assist with data recovery.
