Loaner Notebook Program

Overview

The Technology Support Center maintains an inventory of 30 notebook computers available for short term loan to faculty and staff at William and Mary.  Loaners are intended  to be used for College business and may be checked for a maximum timeframe of 2 weeks.  The notebooks are from 1 to 4 years old and run Windows 7 operating system with the standard facstaff software package including Office 2010.

How do I reserve a notebook? 

Call the Technology Support Center at 221-HELP to check on availability and reserve a notebook.

Where do I pick up and return the notebook?

The notebooks are available in Jones Hall, Room 208.  A short check out form must be completed to check out the notebook.  In addition to the checkout form, you will have to logon to the notebook while connected to the William & Mary network to build your profile before it will work off campus.

How long can I keep a borrowed notebook? 

To maintain maximum availability, we allow notebooks to be checked out no longer than two weeks.

What happens if the notebook is stolen or damaged while I have it? 

Your department will be responsible for the cost of repairing or replacing the notebook.

What happens if the notebook experiences a hardware failure while I have it?

Information Technology will be responsible for all repairs when the notebook is returned.

Can specialized software be installed on the notebook? 

Usually software is licensed by the individual computer and these computers are only licensed for the standard facstaff image.  If you have specialized software and you will not violate your license agreement, you can install the software yourself.
