A Note About Securing Your Computer

Although thefts on campus are not the norm, the Haverford College campus is not immune to them. All Faculty are strongly encouraged to use particular care in locking their offices.  In most cases of theft, computers were stolen from unlocked offices.

Visiting Faculty Loaner Pool

Although the College does not provide computers for visiting faculty, we do have a limited number of previously used laptop computers available for semester or academic year loans. Visiting faculty who do not have a computer to bring to campus may request a computer from our pool of previously used laptop computers for the duration of their appointment. To make a request please fill out the form below. Mac and Windows computers are typically available but quantities are limited and requests are fulfilled based on availability.

Note: Delivery date is not guaranteed as computers can take up to 2 weeks to prepare. Please contact IT Service Desk if request requires urgent attention.
