Hardware and Software

It's important that a new employee has a computer ready to go for their first day on campus. There are three main ways a computer can be obtained for a new employee: 
  • Reimage an unused device:
    • If your department is reusing a device for the new employee, please remember that it is required for the computer to be reimaged before being given to a new user.
    • To start the reimage process, contact the Technology Helpdesk or stop by during our open hours to drop off the computer.
    • It can take several hours for the computer to finish reimaging to it's important to bring the computer for reimage several days before the new employee starts.

  • Purchase a new device:
    • If your department is purchasing a new device for the employee, this will need to be done several months ahead of time due to current computer lead-times.
    • If you are still waiting on a new device when the employee starts, your department can request an LIT loaner device.

  • Obtain an LIT loaner device:
    • LIT loaner computers can be requested for either short-term and long-term use.
    • To request a loaner, please fill out LIT's Computer Loaner Request Form.
    • We do have a limited number of Macbook loaners. If you require a Macbook loaner rather than HP, please contact the Technology Helpdesk after submitting the request form.
Once a new employee has their computer, they will need to install any additional software that is not included in the base image.
