On Campus Tech-List

Technology has been a bridge between on-campus and remote learning.

As Sacramento State continues to emerge from COVID-19 closures, you may have courses in a variety of styles: in-person, hybrid, and some still fully remote. Once again, technology can be a true MVP and connect you however your class schedule is mapped out.

To help, we‘ve rounded up the essential technology resources, links, and support to help make learning — not navigating technology — your focus!

Short and Long-term Laptop & Equipment Checkout

Poster + Course Project Printing

University Print & Mail is your go-to resource for on-campus professional printing (beyond basic copy/print/scan options through PrintSmart locations using your Sac State OneCard).

Device Checkout Guidelines

  • Short-term and Long-term options On campus? You can check out a laptop for up to 4 hours from the Library or University Union, or request a long-term option through the IRT Service Desk.
  • No longer need the device(s) Please return whatever is unneeded to the IRT Service Desk Team at your soonest convenience to help create opportunities for your fellow Hornets.
  • Still need it? If you continue to need a checked out device or equipment for any remote learning purposes for the Spring semester, it will be extended through May 2022.
  • Need new/different equipment? You can request equipment (such as a webcam, internet hotspot, headphones) which are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Laptop & Equipment Checkout Requests, Returns & Support

Internet Connection Options

If you're on campus, your devices should automatically recognize and connect to eduroam, our official campus internet. If you have new devices — or just new to being on campus — our campus wireless section covers device-specific connection instructions.

What if I'm off campus?

In addition to on-campus options, the campus closure necessitated additional options for supporting remote operations — and some of these needs continue even with campus reopening. Whether on-campus or learning remotely, check out off-campus alternatives, including the FCC's Emergency Broadband Benefit Program.

In addition, the IRT Network Team has been hard at work expanding campus coverage to help facilitate outdoor activities and studies. Find your next study spot!


Printing on Campus
