Faculty/Staff  & Student Technology Loans

CSUSM continues to provide technology loans of laptops and other IT hardware to those who require that technology to learn or work in a virtual environment.  If you require a hardware loan, please email with your request and we will respond to you as quickly as possible.

IITS Help Desk - Scheduled Appointments

The IITS Help Desk continues to primarily provide online technical assistance.  Limited on campus support is provided for scheduled appointments only.  The IITS Help Desk is open strictly by appointment only on Tuesdays and Thursday from 10am to 4pm. Please contact us at should you need to make arrangements to receive equipment from IITS or drop off technology that is no longer needed or damaged and in need of repair/replacement. 

To visit the Help Desk, you may park for a limited time in Craven Circle and enter through the sliding doors at the Kellogg building's entrance. As part of established safety measures, we require that you please wear a mask & gloves. If you are experiencing any symptoms of illness, please do not come to campus and reschedule your appointment.

If you are considering purchasing any technology for your home office, please first visit our list of recommended equipment and learn more about the technology purchase request process.
