Equipment Loans

Office Equipment Taken Home

While home use of University-owned non-portable computers and peripherals is generally not permitted, current circumstances require we adapt accordingly. To assist faculty and staff in performing their duties remotely, a streamlined process for temporary use of University computing equipment is now in place.  Your direct supervisor and dean will need to approve your request.

If you are approved to work from home, do not have the equipment to do so, and would be able to do so by temporarily transferring your work desktop computer to home, please use the form linked below. 

  • You must agree to accept financial responsibility for the equipment in your care. 
  • You will need to identify the equipment you will be relocating. 
  • You will need to provide contact information and the location to which you will be moving equipment (HR form). 

Most desktop systems do not have WiFi. You will need to plug the computer directly into a wired port on a home router, or make other arrangements to address connectivity. If you are unsure about how to address connectivity, please consult your local IT professionals for guidance.

Understand that IT staff cannot provide in-person assistance off campus. If you have any concerns or questions about proper/adequate setup in your specific situation, please contact the Help Desk.


Please fill out the Equipment Loan Form below to help ensure proper tracking of the technical equipment taken home for remote work.

You will need:

  • Your personal information
  • Machine name
  • Serial numbers for machine and monitor(s)
  • List of other equipment you will be taking

Considerations when taking equipment home

  • Any damage to devices will be the responsibility of your department.
  • Moving printers to your home is discouraged as they can be damaged easily while moving and are only supported under contract while on the university network.
  • The university has no capacity to provide support for your home or remote network.

IT has identified the following hardware devices for standardized remote teaching.  These devices can be purchased through our Show Me Shop vendors.  If you need assistance in purchasing, submit an IT Procurement, Hardware, Request Purchase ticket at help.mst.edu through the Service Catalog.  This will send your request directly to the Asset Management team. 

Please understand that there are significant supply chain demands on these type of devices and you may encounter delays in delivery.
