Locating Asset Number of a University-Owned Device

Question

How do I find the asset number on my University-owned computer?

Answer

All BGSU owned computers have a physical asset tag, a white sticker with black numbers, adhered to it. On laptops, the sticker will be on the bottom of the laptop; on tablets, this sticker will be on the back of the tablet; on all-in-one computers, this sticker will be on the back of the display; and on standard desktops, this sticker will be on the top of the computer case.

Asset Tags that start with anything other than below numbers are Pre 2014 and should looked at for replacement due to age.

Asset Tags and Year
Asset Tags that start with "14" FY 14
Asset Tags that start with "15" FY 15
Asset Tags that start with "16" FY 16
Asset Tags that start with "17" FY 17
Asset Tags that start with "18" FY 18
Asset Tags that start with "19" FY 19
Asset Tags that start with "20" FY 20

If the asset tag has been removed or worn off, please refer to the following instructions to find the asset number within the operating system:

Windows

  1. In the Windows search bar (Cortana) enter and select This PC.
  2. In the top toolbar, select System Properties. 
  3. Under the Device specifications, the asset number will be listed as the Computer name.

macOS

  1. Select the finder (magnifying glass icon) located on the top right of the menu bar.
  2. Type system information and hit the return key.
  3. The asset number will be displayed in the bottom left corner of the System Information window.
