Sites @ Home

Requests will be responded to within 48 hours to arrange for pick up or shipping. This is not a same-day service. We appreciate you patience as we approve responses and provide follow up information. Please respond to emails as you receive them to ensure the process moves quickly.

In recognition of the technology barrier created by the pandemic and in support of a healthy, safe, and caring environment, ITS created the Sites @ Home laptop loaner program. It is available to students on the Ann Arbor campus to support your academic needs for up to two semesters.

You may check out a pre-configured Windows PC laptop with access to the Campus Computing Sites software library. You will have local administrative access on the laptop to install or configure software to meet your needs.

Who is this for?

The program is designed to assist graduate and undergraduate students on the Ann Arbor campus who:

  • Are in the United States.
  • Desire or need to avoid any shared worked spaces due to pandemic.
  • Strongly depended on Campus Computing Sites previously, will have limited or no access this fall.
  • Have a Mac but need Windows access.
  • Have a personal device that is not working/is incapable of performing necessary tasks.

How does it work?

  • Supply is limited so requests will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis with priority given to students who have a financial need.
  • Students are only eligible for one loaner check-out at a time.
  • Laptops will be shipped directly to the mailing address provided by the requester. If requestor is local to Ann Arbor, we will attempt to coordinate on-campus pick-up.
  • Users must agree to a Sites @ Home laptop loaner program contract upon initiating a loan.

Interested students may request a loaner by completing the online request form.Be sure to check with your school or college about similar programs.

Program Limitations

  • Due to supply and operational limits, this is not a short term/emergency loan program.
  • The program is designed for a minimum loan period of one (1) month, though we strive to accommodate unique requests when possible.
  • The program does not offer same day service turnaround — requests will be evaluated within 48 hours of receipt.
