Loaner Program

OIT offers a loaner program for mobile devices via the OIT Solutions Center in room 113 Frist Campus Center. This program is designed to help faculty and staff conduct University business while away from campus. Available devices include iPhones, Androids, Flip Phones, iPads, Mobile Hotspots, Laptops, Surface Pro’s and Apple Adapters.

Mobile devices and accessories are limited and lent out on a first-come, first-serve basis. We apologize if a certain device is not available during your time of travel.

Reservations must be made online by completing the Mobile Reservation form for the device you wish to borrow (See links below). 

There is no cost to borrow the equipment, however excessive talk, text or data usage, especially in international destinations could result in a bill back to the department. User’s should use discretion and be cognizant of their cellular data, text, and talk usage while using our loaner equipment.
