Laptop Loan Request

Laptop Loan Policy

IT Services maintains a small inventory of laptop computers for short-term loan to Okanagan College employees. There is no charge for these units but the maximum loan period allowed is two months – these computers are not intended to replace primary work site computers or to fulfill longer-term computing requirements. They are available to employees that:

  • 1. Need a temporary replacement while their assigned laptop is with IT Services for repair. In this case, section A of this policy does not apply.
  • 2. Do not have a laptop and need one for use at meetings, conferences, or symposia to take minutes or notes or make presentations requiring visual digital demonstrations.

IT Services cannot guarantee that a laptop will be available. Laptops are provided on a first come, first serve basis.

A. Loan Procedure

Reservations for laptops must be placed in advance by completing a Computer Loan Service Request available on myOkanagan. This is necessary in order to adequately schedule the distribution of laptops and IT staff time. Information that you must provide in your Computer Loan Request form includes:

  • Number required
  • Scheduled return date (maximum loan period is two months)
  • Intended use.
  • Name of budget manager / supervisor

Employees are required to report any problems experienced with the laptop during the loan period.

B. Hours and Contact Information

Laptops are to be picked up and dropped off during regular business hours at IT Services (in the atrium of the Centre for Learning, across from International Ed). If other arrangements need to be made for pickup and drop off, IT Services must be given a minimum 48 hours notice. The working condition of the laptop will be assessed upon its return. Please allow sufficient time for this assessment to take place.
