Laptop computers are available for the use of student-athletes while traveling. The following rules must be observed for use of these computers:
Student-athletes must reserve a laptop in person by filling out a reservation form. A computer may be reserved, at most, two days in advance. For example, if a student-athlete would like to use a computer for a weekend road trip, the computer may be reserved the Wednesday before the weekend.
A computer may be picked up after 12:00 p.m. on the reserved date. At that time the reservation sheet should be completed with the following information: the student-athlete is required to leave a form of I.D. in the OAS while the computer is on loan. Acceptable forms of I.D. include: drivers license, V.U. student I.D. or a major credit card. The student-athlete must also learn how to properly use the laptop before borrowing it from the Office of Academic Support (OAS).
The laptop must be returned by 12:00 p.m. the following day on overnight usage. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE. Other student-athletes may be waiting to take a computer out. Late returns will result in restrictions on future use. Upon returning a laptop, a student-athlete must sign the computer back in, computers are not to just be dropped off.
Student-athletes will be liable for the loss/theft of a computer signed out to them.
Computers will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis with priority given to traveling teams. If a student is not traveling on a particular weekend and would still like to borrow a laptop, he/she may sign out a computer after 3:00 p.m. that Friday if there are any remaining at that time.
