Guidelines for Appropriate Use of College Owned Laptops

[print version]

Please complete the top of the form online then print the form to obtain the necessary signatures.

Use of the laptop should be in compliance with the college’s Responsible Use of Information Technology policy.

The laptop computer is provided for your use, but it remains the property of CCRI. Laptops must be returned to the Information Technology Service Desk if your employment at the college ends.

Theft or loss that occurs on campus should be reported to the CCRI Campus Police. For theft or loss off campus, you should report the disappearance to the local police and notify the College Police upon returning to campus.

The laptop is configured to be used on and off campus and includes our standard supported software programs. You may install other work related software as long as you are in compliance with copyright laws and college policies for appropriate use of software.

You are responsible for maintaining an appropriate backup of your work-related documents and data files. You are also responsible for the security and confidentiality of any administrative data that you might save on your laptop in accordance with the college’s Data Security Policy.

IT support of college owned laptops will be equivalent to that provided for college owned desktop computers. First level troubleshooting will be provided via phone or email by the IT Service Desk. However, subsequent levels of support will require the laptop to be worked on either in a campus office or via a delivery to the IT Service Desk.

Your signature below indicates that you have read this appropriate use statement and have had your questions about appropriate laptop use answered. This agreement must be signed before a laptop can be issued through this program.
