Surplus Computer Request

[11-OCT-2019] We are currently out of Surplus Computer equipment. We should have more Surplus Computers in the summer of 2020.

 

The faculty or staff member supervising this request (not a student) is asked to complete this form in full.

OVERVIEW — PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

Colorado School of Mines lab computers are replaced every three to four years using Tech Fee funds provided by students and matched by the Mines administration. Used lab computers in good condition will be reallocated without charge by Computing, Communications, and Information Technologies (ITS) in this order of preference:

  1. Student labs, workrooms, and breakout rooms
  2. Lecturers and instructors without departmental or research funds
  3. Unfunded graduate students (funded graduate students should receive a computer from RA funds)
  4. Other Mines-affiliated units

Students: Please have your advisor complete and submit this form. In the “justification” section, below, your advisor should indicate whether you are on a Research Assistant (RA) contract. There may be a limited number of computers available, so please submit your request as soon as possible at the start of the semester for full consideration.

Note that while ITS will support surplus computers for a reasonable period of time, these machines are no longer protected by a manufacturer’s warranty. As such, if repair parts are eventually needed, recipients or their departments will be responsible for the cost of those parts. In addition, the recipient or department may be required to purchase an operating system or other software for each computer received. Peripherals like monitors, keyboards, and mice will be supplied if available.

These computers are available for on-campus use only.

The faculty or staff member supervising this request (not a student) is asked to complete this form in full. Further correspondence will take place through the Mines Help Center. Please submit one form per recipient or lab.
