Laptop Return FAQs

Q: I received an email telling me I had to return a laptop lent to me by the university during the period we have been working remotely. Where do I return it?

A: Return laptops to Bouillon Hall Room 128, which is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Q: When is the deadline for returning the laptop?

A: the university is asking that you please return the laptop that was loaned to you by July 1, 2021. You do not need to wait until July 1 to return a laptop but can do so immediately.


Q: What if I am continuing to work remotely? Do I still have to return the laptop?

A: Yes, all borrowed laptops must be returned by July 1, 2021. If you are continuing to telework, please work with your supervisor to arrange for a new laptop or to be permitted to take your desktop computer home.

Q: If I have university files that need to be backed-up or I need to preserve institutional data, what should I do?

A: You should upload the data onto shared storage (e.g. G, N or S Drive), or university cloud storage (MS OneDrive) and transfer it to your regular university computer. Make an appointment with IS Service Desk staff if you need help transferring the data.


Q: I received my loaner laptop via mail, how do I return it?

A: Please contact the IS Computer Support Services at (509) 963-3376 for next steps.


Q: I brought home computer equipment from my office. Do I have to do anything special to return it?
