Office Devices: Request Device

Who can use it?

BGSU Faculty, Staff

What is it?

The process for requesting a new or gently used computer or computer accessory (such as a monitor or scanner) for current employees and/or requesting a new device for new hires (faculty or staff).

The purchase of smaller office accessories and equipment does not need to be made through ITS.

This is not intended to be used for the Desktop Refresh Project.

For planning purposes, please allow a minimum of 10-15 business days for the delivery of the requested system.

Where to get it?

Complete the "Request Device" form on this page to notify ITS of your request. 

Please note: If the request is for a new employee device, tenure track faculty and full-time staff will receive new computers. Non-tenure track faculty and part-time staff receive best available gently used computers.

How to use it?

Once the form has been submitted it will be reviewed by ITS and you will be notified of approval/denial. More information may need to be collected upon approval.

How much does it cost?
